Pre-Performance Lecture: Sarah Harlan-Haughey, ‘As You Like It’

October 20, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join UMaine English professor and MHC Faculty Advisory Group member Sarah Harlan-Haughey for a lecture on Shakespeare’s “As You Like It,” presented with the support of the Clement and Linda McGillicuddy Humanities Center, before the Collins Center for the Arts’s presentation of “As You Like It” from Theater at Monmouth on Tour.

Welcome to Arden. This is the story of Rosalind. Oppressed and exiled from Court under threat of death, she escapes with her cousin, cross-dressed and gartered, into the wild and unpredictable Forest of Arden. Disguised as a boy, she creates a world of her choosing, reveling in her newfound agency and self-discovery. But chance encounters with the love-struck Orlando complicate her new adventure. All the world’s a stage in “As You Like It”, Shakespeare’s gender-bending comedy, where poetry, mistaken identities, and true loves lost and found abound.

Dr. Harlan-Haughey’s pre-performance lecture is free and open to the public. Tickets for “As You Like It” begin at $25 and are available from the Collins Center for the Arts box office.
