Winner of the 2023 Governor General's Literary Award for Drama.

The title of William Shakespeare's As You Like It holds a double meaning that teasingly suggests the play can please all tastes. But is that possible? With his subversive updating of the Bard's classic, Indigenous creator and cultural provocateur Cliff Cardinal seeks to find out. The show exults in bawdy humour, difficult subject matter, and raw emotion; Cardinal is not one to hold back when it comes to challenging delicate sensibilities.

Born on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Cliff Cardinal (Stitch, Huff, and Cliff Cardinal's CBC Special) studied playwriting at the National Theatre School of Canada and is an associate artist at VideoCabaret, where he develops his new work.
