Shakespeare, set in 1917 Butte
Spokane 7 As William Shakespeare wrote it, “As You Like It” is a comedy about a duke’s daughter who flees her usurping uncle’s court for the forest, where she dabbles in cross-dressing and young love amid a contemplation on class. As Montana Shakespeare in the Parks’ new artistic director saw it, the play written 400-plus years ago mirrors a more recent set of struggles. A touring production taking an outdoor stage Saturday in Liberty Lake sets the play in 1917 Butte, where real-life class conflict played out outside booming copper mines.
