William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night

April 26 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm

$15

One of William Shakespeare’s most celebrated comedies, Twelfth Night is a tale of mistaken identity, love, and the revelry of the festive season. The play unfolds when a young woman named Viola washes up on the shores of far-off Illyric.  Believing her twin brother Sebastian perished in the wreck, Viola disguises herself as a man named Cesario to navigate the unfamiliar land.  Employed by Duke Orsino, Viola (now Cesario) is charged with communicating Orsino’s attempts to woo the Countess Olivia.  However, a twist ensues when Olivia, captivated by Cesario’s charm, falls in love with the disguised Viola. The plot thickens as Viola herself is smitten with Orsino, creating a triangle of unrequited love.
