March 3-20, 2016
By William Shakespeare Directed by Bruce Kirkley and Raina von Waldenburg
Shipwrecked on the shores of Illyria, the young and resourceful Viola finds herself a stranger in an even stranger land. Disguising herself as a young man to gain entry into the court of Duke Orsino, Viola soon becomes entangled in a comic web of mistaken identities and misplaced love. Add to the mix the madcap antics of the jovial Toby Belch and his hapless sidekick Andrew Aguecheek as they plot revenge on their nemesis, the self-righteous Malvolio, and the stage is set for outrageous hilarity and surprising turns of events. One of Shakespeare’s most celebrated comedies, Twelfth Night reminds us of the intoxicating power of love both to deceive and redeem the human heart.
