She Speaks

Directed by Leanne G. Stump

From women's eyes this doctrine I derive:
They are the ground, the books, the academes
From whence doth spring the true Promethean fire.


Though the men take the title, the women oft steal the show. From Beatrice's sharp wit to Juliet's broken heart, the fairer sex have just as much to say as their male counterparts.

Adapted from the works of William Shakespeare, this new piece laces together the voices of Shakespeare's most memorable women.

Arden Now (As You Like It)

Directed by Melissa Schick

This collaborative adaptation sets Shakespeare's As You Like It in a world where ideals of beauty and desirability are more celebratory of people's unique individuality and where mainstream society does not attempt to impose a restrictive binary concept of gender to categorize people. We strive to tell this classic story in ways that are fully inclusive, body-positive, and sex-positive. We have cut the original text down, made some creative edits, and have added music, movement, and poetry that express love and exuberance through a variety of times, cultures, and genres. Because if all the world's a stage, everyone should be represented.
