“Love sought is good, but giv’n unsought is better.”
Whilst searching for her lost twin brother in Illyria, Viola stumbles upon something entirely unexpected – love. But in Illyria, love’s true course is never going to run smoothly.
No one is quite what they claim to be in this strange place – male/female, lover/fighter, happy/sad, fool/priest – which leads to all sorts of complications.
Shakespeare’s classic comedy of love and identity is given a rollicking makeover with a festival vibe and live music on stage. Grab your wristbands now before they all get snapped up!
