We that are true lovers run into strange capers.

After fleeing home to escape political persecution, Rosalind finds herself hiding in the countryside among a boisterous cast of characters, making unexpected acquaintances and experiencing the restorative power of love along the way. CSF’s intimate, theatrical production will feature a cast of eight portraying every role in the play.

Since 1958, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival has delighted audiences with professional theatre on the CU Boulder campus. Complete your Colorado summer with Shakespeare in the elegant University Theatre.
