Date: Saturday, July 28th
Time: 7:30 to 9:30PM
Location: Amos Waites Park

Looking back 100 years to Canada in 1918, Rosalynde (or, As You Like It) explores the right to be who we are, to love whom we choose and to do what we please in a time when women were fighting for equality, the government was regulating recreational substances, and conflict was shaping our country. Not at all like today, eh?
