What a tangled knot! On the wild island of Illyria, a grieving woman quietly washes ashore. She disguises herself in men’s clothes, gets a job working for a handsome man and tries to find her way. Sent to woo on behalf of her new employer, she quickly becomes the object of desire of a powerful woman, even as she pines secretly for her new boss! Everyone here it seems has a secret longing — someone they miss, a past to hide, a desire they have carried locked up inside just waiting for the right moment to burst forth. Originally written to cap off a season of partying, “Twelfth Night,” or “What You Will,” gives us some of Shakespeare’s richest characters and a place to examine our own secret longings and desires. It's a journey filled with poetry, music, pranks and the hope that when we find our other half we will once again be made whole.
