Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Sam White
June 29 – September 7, 2019 Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre

Orsino loves Olivia (who won’t give him the time of day). Olivia loves Viola (whom she thinks is a boy). Viola loves Orsino (who doesn’t know she’s a girl). Malvolio loves being in love; and Sir Andrew, Toby Belch, and Maria love life to its fullest. It’s all rollicking confusion, but these hilarious characters do, at last, find love where they least expect it.

Content Advisory
Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare's most loved comedies. It includes Shakespeare’s usual puns and innuendo, but is suitable for all audiences.
