About the play: As You Like It subverts the traditional rules of romance. Gender roles, nature and politics are confused in a play that reflects on how bewildering yet utterly pleasurable life can be.

The 1st Annual Steerman Festival is a showcase of new playwriting by Vassar students. Works include ten- minute plays and excerpts from longer plays. We will also hear from playwrights on what they’ve learned about the process of writing new work as well as their thoughts on new work that’s being professionally written and produced in the professional theatre today.

ABOUT EMERITUS JIM STEERMAN: James B. Steerman joined the Vassar College drama faculty in the fall of 1967. He had completed an MFA in playwriting and dramatic literature at the Yale School of Drama in 1962 and was finishing coursework for a DFÅ at Yale in the same fields when he arrived at Vassar. During the first decade of the 21st century, James continued to write plays and offer courses in both drama and film. He served as chair of the two departments and oversaw their continuing development. He also helped create an annual playwriting competition for students. James retired from Vassar as Professor Emeritus of Drama and Film in early 2011. 

There will be no live public audience in attendance for this presentation based on the guidelines from Vassar College on gatherings due to the current Covid-19 pandemic situation.
