- Categorized in: Life
Following a shipwreck, Viola is washed ashore in a strange land. To protect herself she adopts a male disguise. But what use are disguises when Lady Olivia falls madly in love with her, and she herself falls in love with Count Orsino? It could all end in tears – even if most of them are of laughter.
Illyria will perform on a stage exactly the same as those used by mediaeval touring troupes and their lightning costume changes and jubilant presentation would be very familiar to audiences in Shakespeare’s time. Bring a picnic and enjoy a great evening’s entertainment – as authentic a production of Shakespeare as you are likely to see anywhere in the world!
