A presentation by Renaissance scholar Edmund Campos
Event detail
Add to my calendar

This summer, the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival presents As You Like It: a new musical with music by The Kilbanes and Resident Artist, Phil Wong. San Francisco performances take place in the Presidio (Aug 31-Sept 8) and McLaren Park (Sept 14-Sept 22).

In this presentation, you will learn about how the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival has re-imagined this classic comedy about hijinks in the forest with the Bay Area in mind. Our production asks what it means to be exiled from the City to the wilderness in today’s society, and interrogates the politics of space and community membership in a celebration of our common humanity.

All are welcome to the library for this lively presentation conducted by Renaissance scholar, Edmund Campos, accompanied by professional actors from the show who will perform scenes that illustrate the themes of the play. The presentation will end with a short Q&A.

Learn more about History and Genealogy through the wealth of resources available at the Library.
