“As You Like It,” by William Shakespeare, is directed by A drian Noble and runs through September 30 at the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre.

Flirtation, friendship and mistaken identity make for one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. Rosalind escapes into the forest and adopts the persona of a man to get close to her beloved Orlando. But when he falls for another woman, she must untangle the web of deceptions she has woven to win her true love. “As You Like It” explores the giddy excitement and dizzying foibles of love and is a perfect summer night under the stars.

“Divine Rivalry,” “God of Carnage,” by Yasmina Reza, is directed by Richard Seer and runs through September 2 at the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre of the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center.

Two sets of parents gather in an upscale Brooklyn home to discuss a playground altercation between their sons. At first civility is upheld, but as the conversation goes off track and the rum bottle opens, decorum flies right out the window and leads to a hilarious afternoon of name-calling, tantrums and tears. Yasmina Reza’s Tony Award-winning comedy is a fourway.

San Diego’s Balboa Park at 1363 Old Globe Way.
