Love, hysteria, and deception reign in this Victorian reimagining of Shakespeare’s classic 'Twelfth Night' from Some Kind of Theatre.
About Twelfth Night
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Love, hysteria, and deception reign in this Victorian reimagining of Shakespeare’s classic.
Cesario is in love with Orsino, who’s in love with Olivia, who’s in love with Cesario, who’s really Viola in disguise. There’s cross-dressing, crossed lines, and cross servants. The situation’s complicated, and that’s before Viola’s missing twin turns up! Societal masks, hidden identity, unrequited love, and the perils of Victorian psychiatry form an intricate web of heartbreak and despair. Can love prevail against the mores of Victorian society? Make of it what you will...
