About This Show

Or What You Will. Shakespeare comedy of mistaken identity, practical jokes and unrequited love. Rescued from a shipwreck the twins Viola and Sebastian arrive independently in Illyria, both thinking the other is drowned. Viola disguises herself as a boy and finds employment with the Duke who is in love with Olivia. Malvolio is the subject of a cruel joke played on him by Sir Toby Belch (yellow stockings cross-gartered) leading him to believe that Olivia loves him. But Olivia has fallen in love with the disguised Viola, while she is in love with the Duke (following it so far?!).

This workshop performance of Twelfth Night in the Globe Theatre is open to all and celebrates the talents of our visiting American students from Rutgers Conservatory. This remarkable group of BFA Acting majors from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, have been training at the Globe for six months of their third (junior) year. Join them as they celebrate the end of their time in London in true Shakespearean style.
