About the Play
Shakespeare’s romantic comedy is designed to immerse students, young audiences and families alike in the playwright’s timeless work in this 75-minute abridged production. A pair of shipwrecked twins set into motion a tale of mistaken identity and unlikely love. Separated from her brother Sebastian, the quick-thinking Viola adopts a male disguise and enters the service of the handsome Duke Orsino—only to find herself in the middle of a triangle of unrequited love. Following each Saturday performance, the actors remain on stage for a question-and-answer session, then join the audience in the Lobby for conversations and photos.
