“Twelfth Night” by William Shakespeare, directed by Dr. Hugh K. Long

Twelfth Night is a fast-paced romantic comedy with several interwoven plots of romance, mistaken identities and practical jokes. Separated from her twin brother Sebastian in a shipwreck and fearing both her brother lost and her own safety, Viola disguises herself as a boy, calls herself Cesario, and joins the service of the Duke Orsino. Duke Orsino orders young Cesario (Viola) to woo the Countess Olivia on his behalf, but Cesario (Viola) mistakenly attracts the romantic attentions of the Countess Oliva, setting up one of the most hilarious love triangles in English literature. Eventually Sebastian turns up and causes even more confusion, chaos and comedy abounds.
