All The World's A Stage

And all the men and women merely players.  They have their entrances and their exits.  And one man in his life plays many parts. - Jaques in As You Like It

Serena had her first taste of Shakespeare, taking in As You Like It at Bard on the Beach.  She particularly enjoyed the interplay between the four lovesick couples, with Touchstone and Audrey being her favourite "because they are so funny!". She also got a kick out of the idea that since women were not allowed to act in Shakespeare's time, Rosalind would've been played by a man pretending to be a woman (Rosalind) pretending to be a man (Ganymede)!
