A visually inventive and physical approach to Shakespeare’s sparkling comedy, this boisterous new production launches the faction theatre co.’s ambitious Rep Season.
For seven weeks at the beginning of 2012, the faction – an Associate Ensemble of the New Diorama – will take up residency in the building with a single company of actors presenting Twelfth Night in repertory with Mary Stuart and Miss Julie.
The intelligent and resourceful Viola and her twin brother Sebastian are separated during a shipwreck, each believing the other is dead. Disguising herself as a boy to serve in the court of Duke Orsino, Viola is sent on a mission to woo the Countess Olivia on his behalf. But Olivia falls desperately in love with Viola’s alter ego.
Meanwhile Olivia’s puritanical manservant Malvolio becomes the target of an ingenious prank as a wily maid, a clown, and a pair of partying war veterans attempt to disrupt his sense of order.
“the strength of the ensemble... a must see”
