O time, thou must untangle this, not I.
It is too hard a knot for me t’untie.
The world can be a dangerous place for a woman alone—so, in Twelfth Night, Viola decides it’s safer to be a man. Separated from her twin brother by a shipwreck and washed up on the shores of an unfamiliar country, Viola puts on some pants and plays the role of the dutiful page to a handsome Duke. Suddenly the courageous young woman finds herself at the heart of a love triangle, unable to reveal her identity—or gender—to either the man she loves or the woman whose heart she has unintentionally stolen. Just when the confusion seems at its peak, a certain long-lost twin emerges from the sea, sending the forlorn lovers into a whirlwind of romance, confusion, and silly-looking pants.
One of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies, Twelfth Night contains some of the canon’s most memorable characters, from the passionate Olivia and the lovelorn Viola to the devious Sir Toby Belch and poor, foolish Malvolio. It’s no surprise, then, that the play has attracted some of the world’s finest actors over the years. Casts of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s many productions of the play have included Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Diana Rigg, and Ian Holm, among others, while a Helena Bonham Carter-fronted film version snagged Imelda Staunton and Ben Kingsley. This production adds to the list with a creation of their own: the mysteriously named Poor Wandering Man, played by Adam Mareth.
