Twelfth Night Directed by Tony Copper

May 24, 30, June 1 at 7:30 and Sunday May 26 at 3:00pm

Viola has been shipwrecked in a violent storm off the coast of Illyria; in the process she has lost her twin brother, Sebastian. She disguises herself as a boy and assumes the name Cesario for protection. Thus disguised, Viola becomes a page in the service of Orsino, the Duke, whom she falls in love with. Orsino is in love with the Countess Olivia, and sends Viola to court her for him, but Olivia falls for Viola instead.


Banned History of Twelfth Night

This lighthearted comedy about a girl who washes ashore after a shipwreck and disguises herself as a boy was banned in a New Hampshire school system in 1996 by a rule titled "prohibition of alternative lifestyle instruction," which means that teachers in the district are forbidden from discussing homosexuality in the classroom. The plotline in which Viola, dressed as a boy, falls in love with Duke Orsino was deemed inappropriate.
