William Shakespeare’s As You Like It, A Radical Retelling

by Cliff Cardinal

April 26 – May 15, 2022

Sweet are the uses of adversity, Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous, Wears yet a precious jewel in his head – AS YOU LIKE IT, WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

Theatre Network is pleased to present the Crow’s Theatre production of William Shakespeare’s As You Like It, A Radical Retelling by Cliff Cardinal.

The title of William Shakespeare’s As You Like It holds a double meaning that famously teases, this is a play to please all tastes. But is that possible?

In this radical retelling, acclaimed Indigenous creator and cultural provocateur Cliff Cardinal delights in black humour, difficult subject matter, and raw emotions.

“It is anarchic and tender and seething and raw. And important for us now. – Istvan Reviews

“Unlike any other production of the play, past or future. NNNN” – Now Magazine

Born on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Cardinal (Stitch, Huff, and Cliff Cardinal’s CBC Special) studied playwriting at the National Theatre School of Canada and is an associate artist at VideoCabaret, where he develops his new work.

Writer: Cliff Cardinal

Featuring: cast will be announced at each performance.
