Green Theatre Collective’s goal is to produce engaging sustainable theatre that connects audiences with the natural world and has a minimal impact on our environment.  This professional production used 7 actors to play a total of 15 characters, using my 90 minute adaptation of As You Like It. 

    Green Theatre Collective toured this production to a variety of outdoor locations: Maudslay State Park in Newburyport, MA as guests of Theater in the Open; Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY; Sylvester Manor, a sustainable farm on Shelter Island, NY; and Franklin, NY as guests of Franklin Stage Company.

    Characters were delineated by small costume changes and shifts in the actors’ voices and physical work.  For reviews of our production, click here.
