About This Show

Hailed as a “wild rumpus of a show” by The Philadelphia Inquirer, Pig Iron Theatre Company’s raucous, spirited Twelfth Night breathes new life into the Bard’s classic.

With equal measures of absurdity and heart, the company fuses their distinctive physical performance style with Shakespeare’s text, creating an exhilarating version replete with practical jokes, gender confusion, and mistaken identity. This exuberant, unpredictable, award-winning production is definitely not your grandparent’s Shakespeare.
