Great Lakes Theater Festival's Free Touring Production Showcases the Work of Seven Local Playwrights
"Seven Ages" is Inspired by a Monologue from Shakespeare's "As You Like It"

Vivian Goodman
The Great Lakes SHAKESPEARE Festival used to perform as many as 5 Shakespeare plays per season. It's now called the Great Lakes THEATER Festival , but it's still doing Shakespeare. This fall's major production at the Ohio Theater is the romantic comedy, "As You Like It". It's a play about identity, love, and what it means to be human. The same themes are in a new play that the Festival will present this spring and summer at libraries, churches , and schools across Northeast Ohio. The one-act play "Seven Ages" is really seven different plays performed in sequence, each one written by a different local playwright:
