Shipwrecked on the island of Illyria, Viola and her twin brother, Sebastian, are separated, each fearing the other lost to the sea. Viola disguises herself as a boy and wades into a complex romantic triangle with Duke Orsino and the Countess Olivia. Fiasco Theater, an ensemble theater company created by graduates of the Brown University/Trinity Rep M.F.A. acting program, brings its signature imaginative style to the popular Shakespearean comedy.
