Performance Venue: The Overtime Theater’s Gregg Barrios Theater
Anytime you hear “Shakespeare comedy” you’re guaranteed at least one marriage and quite likely a case of mistaken identity. Twelfth Night is no exception, featuring twins, separated and feared dead by each other after a shipwreck. The sister takes on a male persona to survive, thus allowing for the mistaken identity, and comedic antics ensue. The primary quartet of lovers wind their complicated way to their happy endings; the lower nobility and servants play cruel, even violent, tricks on one another; and Feste the Fool plies her art in the thick of it all.
This production is adapted but all the language IS William Shakespeare’s - it is not “in translation” - but the setting is contemporary, somewhat abstract, and features several traditionally male roles played by and as women. The metatheatrical approach we take is well suited to the intimate space of the Overtime’s Gregg Barrios Theater: without a lot of physical spectacle, we allow for the language and the performances to remain the focus. As in Shakespeare’s day, you come not just to watch but to hear the play, which is also true of the songs of Twelfth Night. Local musician Jack Bonner has written and produced original music to Shakespeare’s lyrics and they will be performed live by our Feste, Meaghan Setterbo.
