May 31, 2013 -- "As You Like It" by William Shakespeare

Meeting Information:
Date: Friday, May 31, 2013
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: KC Plaza Branch Library
Address: 4801 Main Street
We meet in the Small Meeting Room

Shakespeare is widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English Language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist.  Thus our group always selects one of his works each year for discussion. We selected "As You Like It" because it is being performed this summer in Kansas City's "Shakespeare In The Park" performances.

As You Like It is a pastoral comedy by William Shakespeare believed to have been written in 1599 or early 1600 and first published in the First Folio, 1623.

Here is a good video review from PBS of "As You Like It" from minute 30 to the end (the first half is about Twelfth Night):
