The title of William Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT holds a double meaning that teasingly suggests this a play to please all tastes. Is it possible? With his subversive updating of the Bard's classic, cultural provocateur Cliff Cardinal seeks to find out. The show exults in dark humour, difficult subject matter, and raw emotion. Bear these words in mind;

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
