Twelfth Night is Shakespeare's great comedy that instructs us in the ways of love - what it means to play at being in love, what can happen to people who think that they can control love, and what havoc our own desires can create when we fail to acknowledge our own frailties.
The Drama department presented an adaptation of Twelfth Night which selected the plots of Viola -Orsino -Olivia, Toby - Andrew - Maria, and Malvolio - Everybody as its centres. The play was set in a timeless land where commerce is overwhelmed by love.
Joel Greenberg, Artist-in-Residence in the Drama Department, had adapted the play and directed the production. Marian Marshall designed set and costumes, and Al Anderson was lighting designer. The cast eas drawn from the senior level acting class that Joel auditioned at semester's beginning.
