Shakespeare & Company is currently presenting William Shakespeare’s "Twelfth Night" directed by Company Artistic Director, Allyn Burrows. This classic showcases a rich, affecting, and deeply funny story of longing, love, and laughter which paints Shakespeare at his peak. Performances run through August 4th in the Tina Packer Playhouse.

This production of "Twelfth Night, or What You Will" unfolds in a mutable landscape of yearning and surprises, set in a dance hall on a boardwalk by the seashore in 1959. It Is the story of what arises from a shipwreck, the madness of love, and that shipwreck called love.

Helmed by Burrows who has previously acted in three different productions of "Twelfth Night" including the mainstage production at Shakespeare & Company in 1991 joins us this morning. Two of the actors join us as well - Miles Anderson (Malvolio) and Bella Merlin (Maria.)
