A storm rages, a fool sings, a shipwreck separates two twins—so begins the web of mistaken identity, spurned love, and cross-dressing squires that is Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. Lost on foreign soil without her beloved brother, Viola decides the best way to protect herself is to don trousers and a manly disposition. Skirts and curls tucked away, she offers to serve Orsino, the Duke, and promptly tumbles headlong into unreciprocated love. When Orsino's beloved wife then falls for the costumed Viola, it seems nothing could be more complicated—but then a certain long-lost twin emerges from the sea. Twelfth Night sends its forlorn lovers into a whirlwind of romance, confusion, and silly-looking pants, leaving audiences wondering what really makes a fool and from where love springs.
A portion of the proceeds from each of Ripple Effects Artists' productions goes toward supporting a human-rights organization whose mission resonates with the featured story. For Twelfth Night, donations will be made to Freedom to Marry, an organization dedicated to marriage equality nationwide.
