As You Like It
By William Shakespeare
Translation by David Ivers
Actor and director David Ivers presents As You Like It, as you'd like to hear it today.
Presenting a new translation of Shakespeare into contemporary English, Ivers reimagines Shakespeare's comedy from an actor's point of view. Analyzing the play line by line to uncover the meaning of every joke, pun, and witty aside, Ivers repurposes Shakespeare's language while maintaining an homage to the original rhythm, cadence, and structure. An accomplished actor and director, and a lifelong lover of the Bard, Ivers is the perfect writer to bring As You Like It into the present moment.
