A Performance of a Rip-Roaring Shakespearian Comedy Comes to the Wyly Theatre
One of Williams Shakespeare’s finest comedies, Twelfth Night, will whisk audiences away to a world of scheming outlaws and daring rescues, unbelievable love triangles and one truly unforgettable adventure. Originally staged in the 16th century as part of a then-traditional Twelfth Night celebration, it it perhaps the greatest of Shakespeare's comedies. Don’t miss out when it hits the stage at Wyly Theatre!
During this play, Viola has just lost everything in a shipwreck, including her twin brother. She’s found herself on the shores of Illyria, a place she’s never been. In order to get work, she’s had to disguise herself as man. When hired as a servant to Duke Orsino, she encounters yet one more problem: she’s totally in love with him. Unable to express her feelings without blowing her cover, Viola sets out to fulfill the Duke’s orders, which include wooing another woman.
In director J.C. Gafford's rendition, the audience members are invited guests to a Shakespearean celebration given by the Mummers, a 19th century traveling acting troupe. You, too, are invited to partake in the revelry of "Twelfth Night," a delightful comedy filled with romance, misunderstandings and cross-dressing!
