About Twelfth Night

Our 90 minute 6-actor production of Twelfth Night will play against the backdrop of 35 community parks in 50 performances across Ottawa and the surrounding area.

Twelfth Night is the story of two twins — Viola and Sebastian — shipwrecked in the land of Illyria. Believing her brother has been swallowed up by the sea, Viola cross dresses as “Cesario” and secures employment as a courtier under Duke Orsino. Viola finds herself falling in love with the Duke, but is ordered to profess Orsino’s undying affection for Olivia, a countess refusing to grant appearances to any suitors. Chaos ensues as Olivia falls for Viola in disguise, and later mistakes her for Sebastian who (surprise!) is still alive and turns up in Olivia’s court. All the while, Olivia’s drunkard uncle Sir Toby Belch, her maid Maria, Feste the court fool, and pitiful courter Sir Andrew Aguecheek, play a trick on the head servant Malvolia which totters between hilarity and cruelty.
