As You Like It at Deal Middle School

Betrayals and marriages and disguises, oh my! William Shakespeare’s As You Like it is filled with all of these themes and more. Deal’s production will bring this story, originally set in 16th century France, to 2017 Washington, D.C. The play starts with brothers, Oliver and Orlando, at war with one another over broken promises while brothers, Duke Senior and Duke Frederick, struggle with the idea of power. Cousins Rosalind and Celia remain faithful to one another and take on disguises for protection and to win love. A traditional Shakespearean comedy, this five act play ends with a wedding celebration and love and happiness for all.

Buy tickets now for Shakespeare's As You Like It! Performances are Friday, December 1 at 6:30pm and Saturday, December 2 at 2:30pm. Runtime is approximately 1 hour.

Tickets are available at https://www.alicedealtheaterdepartment.com/events/tickets-for-as-you-like-it.

Mark will discuss 5 Worlds: The Sand Warrior and Oskar and the Eight Blessings.
The Sand Warrior, book one in the 5 Worlds series, begins the epic journey of Oona Lee, a clumsy practitioner of a magical dancing art, An Tzu, a little boy from the toxic slums, and Jax Amboy, a superstar athlete, as they travel the 5 worlds to light ancient beacons of feline gods.

Oskar and the Eight Blessings, 2015 National Jewish Book Award for Children's Literature winner, follows a young Jewish refugee from Nazi Germany who arrives in New York City on the seventh night of Hanukkah and receives small acts of kindness while exploring the city.
The first 15 attendees will receive a complimentary copy of 5 Worlds: The Sand Warrior provided by the Friends of the Chevy Chase Library: one per family. Both books will be available for purchase and signing.
