Looking for something fun to do on summer night? a Company of Fools has you covered...
Their Shakespeare in the Park tour is coming to a park near you! This season’s Torchlight production is Twelfth Night – one of Shakespeare’s most beloved works.
Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare is one of Shakespeare’s most musical romantic comedy
Directed by Bronwyn Steinberg. Twelfth Night is the story of two twins — Viola and Sebastian — shipwrecked in the land of Illyria. Believing her brother has been swallowed up by the sea, Viola cross dresses as “Cesario” and secures employment as a courtier under Duke Orsino. Viola finds herself falling in love with the Duke, but is ordered to profess Orsino’s undying affection for Olivia, a countess refusing to grant appearances to any suitors. Chaos ensues as Olivia falls for Viola in disguise, and later mistakes her for Sebastian who (surprise!) is still alive and turns up in Olivia’s court. All the while, Olivia’s drunkard uncle Sir Toby Belch, her maid Maria, Feste the court fool, and pitiful courter Sir Andrew Aguecheek, play a trick on the head servant Malvolia which totters between hilarity and cruelty.
Join a Company of Fools for this vibrant gender-bending comedy of love, music and mistaken identity.
