Twelfth Night

Bing Theatre

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Kate Burton

View Playbill

Shakespeare’s enduring romantic comedy unleashes Saturnalian energies by turning logic and expectation on its head with a tale of mistaken identities and unrequited affection. Shipwrecked on the island of Illyria, Viola and her twin brother Sebastian are separated, each fearing the other lost to the sea. Viola disguises herself as a boy and wades into a complex romantic triangle with Duke Orsino and the Countess Olivia. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything is possible.
