In its largest production to date, the Eckerd Theater Company entrances audiences with Shakespeare's beloved comedy Twelfth Night. Fraught with buccaneer intrigue and mistaken identity, Twelfth Night chronicles the love quadrangle between a shipwrecked heroine, Viola, her twin brother, Sebastian, and the infatuated Duke of Illyria and Lady Olivia who pine after the wrong Elizabethans. The cast, composed of nearly 25 talented Tampa Bay area actors and students, revives one of the bard's most beloved comedies without dipping a defibrillator in ink.
