Twelfth Night

By William Shakespeare Directed by Jerry Ruiz

The perfectly-made comedy of mistaken identity

A shipwreck - lost twins - gender-bending disguise - romantic intrigue. The Bard’s riotous romp affirms the power of love to transform loss into hope, with every word, wink and wooing a sheer delight.


Shakespeare’s comedic masterpiece explores mistaken identity and misplaced passion, while helping us understand how we deal with love, loss and grief and contains some drug use. Recommended for patrons 12 and older.


This production contains the smoking of herbal cigarettes on stage.
