The play is a comedy centered on a case of mistaken identity that some consider to be Shakespeare’s best romantic comedy
Ridgefield High School Theatre proudly returns to the stage on Friday, Oct. 27, kicking off a series of six performances of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Also known as What You Will, the play is a comedy centered on a case of mistaken identity that some consider to be Shakespeare’s best romantic comedy.
Viola and her twin brother Sebastian have been shipwrecked off the coast of the exotic Illyria, with each believing the other to have drowned. Viola disguises herself as a young man and, under the name of Cesario, gets a job as a servant for the Duke, Orsino.
Orsino is in love with Olivia, but she’s mourning for her dead brother, so has rejected all his advances so far. He sends Cesario (who is really Viola) with love letters to woo Olivia on his behalf. Unfortunately for the Duke, Olivia is taken in by Cesario’s disguise and falls in love with him. “If music be the food of love, play on…”
Viola has secretly fallen in love with Orsino, and Orsino is confused by his feelings for his new ‘male’ servant. So, Viola loves Orsino, Orsino loves Olivia and Olivia loves Cesario/Viola. How will it all resolve? Get your tickets and find out for yourself!
