Cruel to be Kind?

Shakespeare Festival Education Tour

February 22-May 13

sfstl_cruel_to_be_kind_pic“Cruel to be Kind?’ brimming with wit and mirth, imagines Shakespeare composing his great comedy “As You Like It.” From the viewpoint of two apprentices, a famous clown, a young maid with designs for public acting, the irrepressible boarding house owner “Mrs. Bundle” and Shakespeare himself, a play is born.  This smart fantasy about the origins of “As You Like It”—a play that opens with a scene of bullying—illuminates a pressing contemporary issue in a way that young people, family audiences, and anyone with an interest in Shakespeare will enjoy.
