A Brief Summary: What is true about love when nothing is as it seems?

Twin siblings, Viola and Sebastian, are lost at sea. Not knowing how else to survive, Viola dresses as a man-servant to Duke Orsino. While the Duke pines for the love of the fair Countess Olivia, Olivia falls in love with Cesario (Viola in disguise). With a drunk uncle, a fool, a foolish knight, a pirate, and the return of the long lost brother, hi-jinx is around every corner in this fast paced comedy! Our narrator will guide the audience along this tale of mistaken identity and misdirected love. “Twelfth Night (or What You Will)” is bound to have the whole family laughing!
