"If Music be the Food of Love, play on;

Give me excess of it."

For Cymbeline

 

"Why, this is very midsummer madness..."

The 2022 production is "Twelfth Night".

Viola is shipwrecked on a strange shore; her brother Sebastian is lost.  Disguised as a man for protection, she enters into the service of Duke Orsino and promptly falls in love with him.  Her situation is hopeless because he's madly in love with Lady Olivia.  But Olivia only has eyes for Viola, thinking she's a man.

While upstairs is a tangle of love, loss and longing, downstairs it's drink, dancing and devilment.  The roguish Sir Toby wants Olivia to marry his wealthy friend Sir Andrew.  And he also wants revenge on a pompous Steward.  As plots collide, things get even more frantic and complicated.  How will it all unravel in Shakespeare's evergreen and ever popular comedy?
