Join us for Illyria’s acclaimed outdoor theatre production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night at the Kymin gardens this August.
Following a shipwreck, Viola is washed-up 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 of them are of laughter.
Illyria presents an evening of yearning romance, music, and sheer joy - all performed on a stage inspired by those of the Elizabethan touring troupes!
