Monday, May 4 at 10:00 AM
Smith Opera House
National Players

Banished from the only home she’s ever known, Rosalind escapes to the Forest of Arden with her cousin Celia and their fool Touchstone. While disguised as a man, Rosalind meets fellow outcasts in the forest, including the dashing and lovesick Orlando. Determined to woo him, Rosalind persuades Orlando in her male disguise to win her heart. For only if Orlando loves her as a man will Rosalind know he truly loves her.

With a ten-person ensemble, National Players melds classic language with contemporary staging of Shakespeare’s imaginative tale about city folk venturing into the woods. A romantic comedy about girls, boys, losing oneself, and finding oneself again.

 

National Players is the touring program of Olney Theatre Center, a 501(c)(3) not-for profit and receives support from the Maryland State Arts Council, the Maryland State Department of Education, and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County.
