    This fun, frenetic and freewheeling farce updates the Old English poem about the warrior Beowulf and is told through the eyes of the epic’s writer, known only as “the bard.” In this version of the story, Beowulf is an out-of-shape prince, while the bard is a desperate poet struggling with a case of writer’s block. This retelling also introduces the bloodthirsty warrior princess Gunborg, whose quest to reach her heroic destiny is ignored by her overprotective father, the king. Learn More

    As She Likes It features women from Shakespeare’s canon who step outside of the male-dominated context of their original works. These familiar women from classic stories may have had muted voices in Shakespeare’s plays, but here they take center stage. These plays offer great roles for women, opportunities for thoughtful scene study, educational exploration and a larger conversation about how these women’s stories resonate in our current era.
