“Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare”
April 18-28. Presented by The University of Idaho Department of Theatre Arts. A comedy of love lines crossed and mistaken identity, the play follows the journey of a castaway, Viola. Shipwrecked on the shores of Illyria and separated from her twin brother she believes to be dead, Viola begins masquerading as a young page named Cesario. She enters the service of Duke Orsino. Orsino is love-struck by Lady Olivia, a woman who will have nothing to do with suitors. Orsino decides to use Cesario as a intermediary to confess his love to Olivia. However, Olivia, believing the messenger to be a man, falls in love with Cesario. And Viola, in turn, falls in love with Orsino. To complicate things further, Sebastian, Viola’s twin brother, is alive and well. Performances are April 18-20, 25-27 at 7:30 p.m., and matinees April 21 and 28 at 2 p.m.
