Written By: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Leah Adcock-Starr (Professional Director Training Program)
Beloved for its rebellious portrayal of gender ambiguity, William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, or What You Will is a comedy about a cross-dressing shipwreck survivor who finds herself at the center of a not-so-ordinary love triangle. Third-year MFA directing candidate Leah Adcock-Starr takes this delightfully comic tale of mistaken identities and weaves it into the jazz-infused world of 1920's New Orleans.
A post-show talk will be held on Thursday, February 5.
Join us on opening night, January 30, for a 'Twelfth Night' Night at the UW Club. MFA directing candidate Leah Adcock-Starr and Department of English Associate Professor Colette Moore share the story and themes of Twelfth Night as it relates to Carnival, Mardi Gras, and the Big Easy. Details here.
