Beloved for its rebellious portrayal of gender ambiguity, William Shakespeare’sTwelfth 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.

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 online.
