As You Like It

Directed by Tom Dugdale


@ Sheila and Hughes POTIKER Theatre

November 24 - December 6

About the Play

We begin in ruins. Families are at war. One brother has overthrown another, seizing control of the government and installing himself as dictator. From this dark beginning, Rosalind, Orlando, and others escape into the Forest of Arden, a mystical place with all the logic of a dream. Those who enter Arden find love, transformation, renewal: their journey through the forest is their dream of a new world rebuilt upon the ashes of the old.



About the Director

Tom Dugdale is a candidate for a Master of Fine Arts in Directing. UCSD credits include A Cure for Pain, Vaudeveaux Nouville, and The Heliotropic Man, an original solo performance piece conceived with Joel Gelman. In New York, he directed Benjamin Britten’s opera, The Rape of Lucretia, for Manhattan School of Music, and he staged the incidental vocal music from Stranvinsky’s ballet, Pulcinella. In the summer of 2008, at Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, Dugdale was assistant director of A Wedding, an opera based on the Robert Altman film of the same name. Dugdale has assisted or observed the work of Robert Woodruff, Anne Bogart, and the Romanian director, Gábor Tompa, his teacher at UCSD. Dugdale is a graduate of Dartmouth College and has studied at Manhattan School of Music and The Aspen Music Festival and School.
