Twelfth Night, AFTLS Fall 2024


Love, deception, ambition, and desire collide in Twelfth Night, Shakespeare’s great romantic comedy. A delightful blend of mistaken identity, disguises, and love triangles, Twelfth Night features some of Shakespeare’s most famed passages, with its effervescent comic energy carried swiftly by deeper currents of grief, forgiveness, and transformation. Fast, energetic, and above all gloriously entertaining, Twelfth Night is one of the great playwright’s most popular and enduring stories.

Actors From The London Stage, the renowned five-actor touring group, brings Twelfth Night back to the touring circuit in fall 2024. With each actor portraying multiple roles, this dynamic, self-directed ensemble brings a fresh and vivacious energy to each new performance.

Shipwrecked on the isle of Illyria, Viola, separated from her twin Sebastian, dresses as a boy and works for the Duke Orsino, with whom she falls in love. Orsino is in love with the Countess Olivia, and sends Viola to court her for him, but Olivia falls for Viola instead. Sebastian arrives, causing a flood of mistaken identity, and marries Olivia. Will Viola ultimately be able to be with the one she loves?
