Fall Play: “Twelfth Night”
Date: November 15, 2017 - November 18, 2017
Event Description Short description: Shakespeare’s comedy of gender confusion, in which a girl disguises herself as a man to be near the Duke she adores, only to be pursued by the woman the Duke loves. Long description. Viola loves Orsino. Orsino loves Olivia. Olivia loves Viola. Malvolio loves himself. Love is certainly in the air in Illyria, but nothing is as it seems, especially when twins, sassy servants, a drunk uncle, a pirate and a merry band of fools are involved. This wise, wacky, and weirdly beautiful comedy about loss, identity and finding love in unexpected places is considered by many to be one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays for good reason.
