Event Details

The title of William Shakespeare’s As You Like It holds a double meaning that teasingly suggests the play can please all tastes. But is that possible?

As You Like It, or The Land Acknowledgement, a radical retelling by Cliff Cardinal, is a devastating yet laugh-out-loud examination of land acknowledgements as cultural and political practice and offers us the unvarnished truth of the state of the reconciliation process between Indigenous communities and colonial settlers in Canada.

Part standup, part dramatic monologue, it pokes fun at non-Indigenous Canadians who offer trite acknowledgments instead of using their resources and platforms to make meaningful change.

Winner of the 2023 Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama, As You Like It, or The Land Acknowledgement, a radical retelling by Cliff Cardinal, is a must-see from one of the most important playwrights and performers in Canada.
