The sort of thing that can happen when a man looks a little too much like his sister.
Orsino is head over heels with Olivia, but she's too busy mourning her dead brother to notice. Meanwhile, her steward is trying to run a strict household while grappling with sexual frustration, and her boozy old uncle is chasing the maid and generally causing trouble. Into this mayhem enter the twins -- one male, one female -- equally lovable but a little too hard to tell apart...
In Lee Lewis' retelling of the play, Viola has lost her twin brother Sebastian following a natural disaster but can't search for him until morning. How will she and her fellow survivors get through the night? They'll put on a show! Using odds and ends they find around the building along with their own salvaged treasures, the characters 'play' Twelfth Night, finding comfort in each other and in the story's enduring sense of hope.
This new production brings a surprising twist and a little bit of magic to Shakespeare's much-loved comedy of mistaken identity, deception and desire.
