WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Shakespeare's best-loved comedy--is now set in riotous 1968 London, when the city was at its most precarious. Viola, shipwrecked and far from her home in India, finds herself separated from her twin and in the middle of a "mod" world set a-wobble from anti-war protests, immigration issues, gay rights, and class struggles. Knowing she can find work dressed as a man, Viola dons the disguise of a foreign gentleman recently arrived from India and works for a Duke who holds court in a hip London society which is topsy-turvy with infatuation, longing, and mistaken identities. Viola soon finds herself in love with the Duke who's in love with a Countess who is in love with…. a foreign gentleman, recently arrived from India... who is working for a Duke....... In this comedy, both silly and wise, Shakespeare examines the many facets of love as well as the darker aspects of human nature.
