Details

“If music be the food of love, play on.” Twelfth Night, 1.1

One of Shakespeare’s most well-known comedies, exploring the pain of unrequited love, satire and mistaken identity, all highlighted by beautiful verse and songs. It follows the journey of Viola, who has been shipwrecked and separated from her brother, as she meets a love-sick duke, mourning lady, scheming drunk, vain pedant, musical fool and cunning maid.
