An Outsiders Inn Production

Seattle theater Company Outsiders Inn brings their fall production to our stages one weekend only this November.

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players — but what does it mean to play? Rosalind is in the midst of her epilogue from As You Like It when the spotlight is interrupted by Phebe; Phebe, the lowly shepherd girl who fell in love with Rosalind in drag as Ganymede. Over the course of a single night, Phebe wanders the forest of Arden, raising questions about sexuality, sonnets, gender, violence, dead deer, and love. And, perhaps, discovering what being a player — and being free — really means.
“Merely searches for the moments when the words of lovers become songs and sonnets, the layers of narrative working to make poetry for the viewer.
It. Is. Special.” – Lonita Cook, In Kansas City
