Critically acclaimed as one of Shakespeare’s most complex and intriguing plays, Twelfth Night is a classic romantic comedy of mistaken identities. When Viola ends up shipwrecked on the opposite side of an island as her nearly identical twin brother, she decides to disguise herself as a boy. Meanwhile, Orsino, a duke on the island, is attempting to woo the Countess Olivia. Olivia falls in love with Orsino’s messenger (Viola in disguise) who is now in love with the duke. All is set right when the twins finally meet face to face. Similar plots can be found in modern comedies, but many of the ideas originated with the Bard.

The cast for the Royal production follows:
Savannah Price – Viola
Andrew McBride – Duke Orsino
Claudia Moskova-Cremeens – Countess Olivia
Nicholas Bell – Sebastian
Joshua Grandon – Malvolio
