full-length, commedia dell'arte adaptation of Shakespeare's classic comedy
Five women play nine characters in this highly athletic, tongue-in-cheek adaptation influenced by clowning, commedia dell’arte, and British Pantomime.
Viola chases Orsino, Orsino chases Olivia, Olivia chases Viola, Sir Aguebelch chases Maria, Maria chases Malvolio, Malvolio chases Olivia, Sebastian chases his thoughts, Feste chases money . . . . and they’re all played by the same five actors!
