Twelfth Night


Twelfth Night
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Allyn Burrows

July 02 – August 04, 2019
Tina Packer Playhouse

"What relish is in this? How runs the stream?
Or am I mad, or else this is a dream!"

Gasping on the shores of Illyria after a shipwreck which cast her brother into the raging sea, Viola finds solace disguised as a boy in the service of Duke Orsino, for whom she falls hard. Orsino is smitten with the idea of love in the person of Lady Olivia, who has recently lost her own brother and couldn't be more underwhelmed by his affections. Olivia's uncle, Sir Toby Belch, and his crew find great delight overturning the household with their raucous antics and song while driving the penultimate of stuffed shirts, Malvolio, nuts. A rich, affecting, and deeply funny story of longing, love, and laughter which paints Shakespeare at his peak.

Generously sponsored by Dr. Donald and Phoebe Giddon.
