Twelfth Night, or What You Will


  • High Park Amphitheatre 1873 Bloor Street West Toronto, ON, M6R 2Z3 Canada

Twelfth Night, or What You Will, Shakespeare’s timeless comedy of mistaken identity, role reversal and romantic misadventure, makes a return to the High Park Amphitheatre in a 1970s set production from actor-director Tanja Jacobs (SeedsThe Watershed). A young noblewoman, Viola, is separated at sea from her twin brother Sebastian and tossed upon the shores of Illyria, where the love-sick Duke Orsino pines for Countess Olivia and mischievous servants plot foolish pranks at each other’s expense. With a nod to the films of Billy Wilder and Wes Anderson, Jacobs sets the action in an island hotel, where some of Shakespeare’s most memorable comedic characters play out their hijinks and social fantasies, with painfully hilarious results.
