TWELFTH NIGHT, OR WHAT YOU WILL
November 18 - November 22
Twelfth Night, or What You Will
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Bill Watson
A shipwreck, lost siblings, twins who conceal their identities, and unrequited love are just the start of this wild comedy, considered to be one of the Bard’s most intriguing ‘problem’ plays. In our zany transformation of Shakespeare’s classic story, we recreate the world of Jazz age youth-culture in 1920s London. Here the aristocracy, and their ‘below stairs’ counterparts, pull out all the stops and bring to our newly renovated Mainstage theater, a powerfully funny gender-bending expose of social bullying, elitism, lust and personal desire that is not to be missed.
Curtains rise at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday, with a 2 p.m. matinée on Sunday, Nov. 22.
