Rosalind's favorite book is As You Like It. From those pages are drawn comfort and parallels with life as an orphan living with the local Reverend's daughter, Celia. When he finds out they are more than just friends, he throws them out of the house. They enter the forest of Arden and the original Shakespeare tells the familiar story of shifting identities from which nobody will return unchanged. Partially modern, partially original Shakespeare adaptation of As You Like It, Ganymede leans into LGBT themes hinted at in the original text but rarely explored in performance.
