About Twelfth Night
Separated from her twin brother in a shipwreck, Viola disguises herself as a man and falls in love with her new employer Orsino, who dotes on OIivia, who falls for Cesario, who’s really Viola. And that’s before Sebastian washes ashore in search of his missing sister. In director Carl Cofield’s vibrant Afro-futurist production, Shakespeare’s most wonderful romantic comedy brims with music and dances to the heartbeat of unrequited love.
