Fleeing Artists Theatre continues a 5th season of Shakespeare in the Park with a production of "Twelfth Night" by William Shakespeare, directed by Kyle David Perry. Bring a lawn chair and a picnic if you like, and enjoy some great theater in the great outdoors!
One of Shakespeare's final comedies, Twelfth Night is considered by many to be the play where Shakespeare perfected his comedic formulae. And it shows.
Viola is a young woman who survives a shipwreck and finds herself stranded in a foreign land. She quickly disguises herself as a man to hide her identity, and begins working for Duke Orsino (who she loves but cannot reveal her identity to). This love quickly escalates to several hilarious love triangles and a plethora of confusion: especially when Viola's twin brother arrives on the scene.
The play will have you laughing until your sides hurt, and then have you laughing some more.
Presented in partnership with the Kenosha Parks Alliance.
