Find yourself cast ashore in a foreign land surrounded by star-crossed lovers and the songs that heartache inspires. Join the talented cast of Stratford’s finest as they pay a fitting homage to one of Shakespeare’s most beloved and delightful comedies. Critics have described the production as a “must see” and a thrilling and compelling theatrical adventure. This production will have your entire family in stitches as you follow several confused characters as they attempt to navigate the tides of romance.

Welcome to a world where sisters pretend to be their brothers and lovers can’t discern who they’ve really fallen for. Twelfth Night captures the complexities of family, class and the competition to win the heart of the right person. Of course, you can’t have a Shakespearean play without a little drama, and your family will love to come together to hiss and boo at the sour Malvolio — a hyperbolic figure who is left in the dust as the other, more naturally gifted, characters fall in and out of comedic love.

If you thought your love life was complicated, just wait until you see how these four lovers, Viola, Olivia, Duke Orsino and Cesario, attempt to discern who is who and who is not. The stakes are high as each tries to evade the tricks of the more malicious characters to discover their true love. From raucous parties to intimate speeches that could only be crafted by the Bard himself, this play offers a spectacular combination of romance and hilarity.

Whether you are a passionate theatregoer or not, Twelfth Night is the perfect play to leave you with a smile on your face and a warmth in your heart.
