Shipwrecked on the coast of Illyria, the quick-witted Viola assumes the disguise of a page boy for Duke Orsino and finds herself at the center of an explosive love triangle in which identity, passion and gender all threaten to come undone. Bursting with vitality and romance, Twelfth Night gives us one of Shakespeare’s most remarkable heroines matching wits with a host of captivating characters—from the love-struck Olivia to the puritanical Malvolio.
D.C. favorite Ethan McSweeny (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Tempest) brings his expressive visual style to this topsy-turvy dream world of poetry, music and mirth.
We’re pleased to announce that Antoinette Robinson will join the cast of Twelfth Night as Viola. Antoinette recently appeared in Timon of Athens at the Folger Theatre, where she also played the role of Celia in As You Like It. Her Off-Broadway credits include As You Like It at New York Classical Theatre and Sir Patient Fancy, The Winter’s Tale, and The Taming of the Shrew at The Queens Company.
