Urban Bard Productions Inaugural Production: Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.
Twelfth Night begins when a shipwreck separates young Viola from her identical twin brother Sebastian, depositing them both in the strange land of Illyria. Assuming her brother dead, Viola dresses as a man to travel safely and finds employ in the court of Duke Orsino, delivering love letters on his behalf to the elusive Countess Olivia. Mistaken identities and foolish love then collide with hilarious results in one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies.
