So, in As You Like It, there are quite a few props, including but not limited to: Rosalind’s necklace that she gives to Orlando, multiple poems, a letter, a sling, and–if you care to stage it–a dead deer.

Crazy weeks… today I’m up in San Jose, picking up Jack from school and next week is Christmas, and the following week is New Years… so I’m thinking the next “This Week in Shakespeare” will be in 2019…
Enjoy time with your loved ones!
