About this show

After being shipwrecked on the shores of Illyria, aristocratic-born Viola assumes her twin brother is dead and takes on the identity of a young male page named Cesario in an attempt to gain work in an unfamiliar land. Her compromised identity puts her at the center of a complicated love triangle that is hilarious and melancholy, and always entertaining. Under the direction of award-winning Northwestern faculty member Mary Poole, Shakespeare's dark comedy is a delightful adventure in the timeless human folly of mistaken identity and misguided hearts. Post-show discussions with the cast and creative team will follow performances on Fri, May 11; Sun, May 13; and Thu, May 17.
