Twelfth Night – Penguin Productions @ Green Lake (Seattle)

July 30, 2022 @ 2:00 pm

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Adrian Martin

If music be the food of love, play on! Viola loves Orsino, who thinks he loves Olivia. Olivia thinks she cannot love at all, then thinks she loves Cesario who is really Viola, dressed as a man. Malvolio thinks he ought to be a gentleman, while the foolish Sir Andrew is one, but is no match for the Lady Olivia. Add in a mournful clown, a wily and witty maid, a swashbuckling brother, and you have a recipe for music, madness, mayhem, and merriment.

This production will explicitly take on gender fluidity and queerness in a contemporary setting, while staying true to the power and beauty of Shakespeare’s text.
