Shipwrecked on the coast of Illyria, and fearing that her brother has drowned, Viola disguises herself as a man. In short order, she falls in love with the neighboring Duke Orsino – who loves the Lady Olivia – who loves the disguised Viola! Mistaken identity. A hilarious love triangle. The ultimate in Shakespearean comedies. It’s been seven years since Twelfth Night has graced our stage, so don’t miss the return of this highly-anticipated comedic masterpiece!
