Shakespeare's most popular and beloved comedy, (described as his perfect play) is being brought to the Wyllyotts stage by PBTC. Shipwrecked twins are lost among love-sick aristocrats, unruly servants,mischievous pleasure seekers, clowns, and a cross-dressing steward. A great storm has caused a terrible shipwreck. A brave, passionate woman named Viola is swept onto the shore of a mysterious island name Illyria. Finding herself alone in this strange and colourful land, she decides to assume the identity of her supposedly drowned twin brother Sebastian, and goes to work in the household of Duke Orsino. Viola soon finds herself falling in love with Orsino. But when Orsino sends her to deliver his love messages to the Lady Olivia, Olivia herself falls for the beautiful young Viola, believing her to be a man. The love triangle is complete: Viola loves Orsino, Orsino loves Olivia, and Olivia loves Viola. Meanwhile, Sebastian who is alive after all, believes Viola to be dead, also washes up on the shores of Illyria. With music as the bittersweet "food of love", all converge and conspire in this comic journey of love and gender confusion! PBTC would like to invite you to join them in this fast-paced, fantasy adventure from start to finish. A bonkers, crazy, daft, dotty, kooky, manic, wacky, explosion of colour, music, mayhem and laughs, tears, romance, love, death, anarchy, destruction, pandemonium and yellow tights!
