by William Shakespeare
Directed by Dick Breeze
Friday 29th April – Saturday 7th May 2011 in the Auditorium
Why this is very midsummer madness!
Shakespeare’s classic comedy of romance, mischief, love, entanglement, wild infatuation and deception.
Shipwrecked on a stormy night in Illyria, the beautiful young Viola disguises herself as a man to protect her honour, and manages to find employment as a page in the court of the lovesick Duke Orsino. But just as Viola finds herself falling for the Duke, Olivia, whom Orsino was pursuing, finds herself falling for the disguised Viola! Meanwhile, the chaos deepens when servant Maria and her drunken friend Sir Toby Belch decide to seek revenge against the prim and proper servant Malvolio.
