Illyria presents an evening of romance, music and sheer joy – all performed on a stage inspired by those of the Elizabethan touring troupes.
Following a shipwreck, Viola is washed in Illyria, where her only chance for survival is to make use of her quick wit and fine singing voice, disguising herself as a man and applying to work in the court of Duke Orsino.
The lovesick Orsino sends “him” to lady Olivia to woo her on his behalf, but Viola’s efforts are so successful that Olivia falls for Viola rather than Orsino. Meanwhile Olivia’s carousing uncle Sir Toby Belch crosses swords with her steward Malvolio and devises a wicked plan to humiliate him. It could all end in tears – even if most are from laughter.
Suitable for all ages 8+
