When its Twelfth Night, the world turns topsy-turvy. Fools are wise men, servants rule, and comic hijinks abound. Separated twins wash ashore in a land of mystery and longing. Shakespeare's lyrical comedy brims with the combustible chemistry of human emotion and the sparkling magic of discovered love. Karin Coonrod directs.
This play runs in rotating repertory with Piano.
