Twelfth Night

Date: 15 Nov 2019

Better a witty fool than a foolish wit …

The twelfth night is the last of the Christmas cycle, a night of madness where the world turns upside down, where grief and joy and laughter and tears are all one. When mere mortals have the power to choose who they are, what they believe in and who they may love.

In this rollicking production from director Christopher Stollery, music and mayhem will fill the summer night.

When Viola is shipwrecked on a strange land, desperate at the loss of her twin brother Sebastian, she disguises herself as a boy to survive. The inevitable ensues with the silliness of mistaken identity, foolish love connections, and a witty fool. On her mad, joyous, romantic journey to rediscovering herself and finding her twin, she will change the people of Illyria forever, bringing just the right amount of chaos, and just the right number of weddings.
