This loose adaptation of Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT explores an apartment community stuck inside trying to find joy in the darkest of situations. Orlando, a recovering addict, struggles to pay rent and "earn" his stay while also trying to woo the artist, Ros who's looking for the perfect moment to catch with her camera. Silvius, a high school teacher, tries his chances with exhausted nurse Phoebe while Audrey, a classically trained musician tries to come to terms with being good but not great. Throughout the play, each character attempts to adjust to a new normal and what it means to find joy in the midst of great loss.
There are roles for 10 actors:
1 Black woman, 1 Latina woman, 1 woman of color, 1 woman of any race,
6 men of any race.
