About the Show

When a shipwrecked Viola washes up on Illyria’s shores without her twin brother, she must adapt to her strange new surroundings on her own. For safety, she disguises herself as a boy and quickly finds favor and employment with the lovesick Orsino, who pines for Olivia’s devotion. After a series of mishaps and plenty of mayhem, their love triangle becomes so entangled it brings all of Illyria along for the ride. When at last the truth is revealed, the Bard’s starry-eyed tale proves that the revelry of love is something worth fighting for.

Themes

  • In this comedy, twins that begin the play lost from each other are reunited by the end. The path in between is unpredictable and full of highs and lows. How do these twins remain motivated when they don’t know if they’ll ever see each other again? What advice would you give them?
  • Many would agree that, when in love, they are willing to do things outside of their normal comfort zone. This certainly happens in the play. The question, then, is how do we know when we’re stretching ourselves in a healthy way, and how do we know when it’s starting to be bad for our well being?
