Twelfth Night

July 9 - 18th, 2015

Babcock Theatre

Alexandra Harbold

A delightfully comic tale of misguided identities, Twelfth Night revolves around the physical likeness between Sebastian and his twin sister, Viola, each of whom, when separated after a shipwreck, believes the other to be dead. The theatrical scramble begins when Viola assumes the identity of Cesario, a page in the household of the Duke of Orsino. The Duke is in love with the Countess Olivia, who rejects him for the newly arrived Cesario. Combine this brilliant and charming romantic comedy with the hysterical characters of Malvolio, Sir Andrew Aquecheek and Sir Toby Belch, and you have one of Shakespeare’s most riotous comedies of mistaken identity!
