Twelfth Night

by William Shakespeare

Adapted and Directed by Cinda Goeken

A CWP Black Box Production

August 4th – 13th, 2023

Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Sundays at 2 p.m.

One of the Bard’s most loved rom-coms, Twelfth Night is a riotous, guffaw-inspiring good time, featuring some of his best work in the mistaken identity department.

The play centers on the twins Viola and Sebastian, who are separated in a shipwreck. Viola (who is disguised as Cesario) falls in love with the Duke Orsino, who in turn is in love with Countess Olivia. Upon meeting Viola, Countess Olivia falls in love with her thinking she is a man. Is anyone who they seem?

Bold, comedic supporting characters add to the chaos and fun, ensuring an evening of love, laughter, and good old 1600s humor for all to enjoy!'

This is a comical story of deception, separation, mistaken identity, pranks, love and reuniting. It features such well-known characters as Viola, Sebastian, Orsino, Olivia, Maria, Malvolio, Sir Toby Belch and Sir Andrew Aguecheek.

Presented with the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.
