About the Show Less...

The tale of identical twins that are shipwrecked, separated and washed up in Illyria features on of Shakespeare's most confusing love triangles. Read More >

Viola and Sebastian are shipwrecked, separated and washed up in Illyria. Believing her brother dead, Viola dresses as a boy to become Cesario and enter Duke Orsino’s court. The Duke uses Cesario/Viola to court Olivia, which leads to Olivia falling in love with Cesario/Viola, who has fallen in love with Orsino, who was always in love with Olivia. Sebastian’s unheralded arrival complicates matters more.

Twelfth Night is performed by Propeller in repertoire with The Taming Of The Shrew.
