Twelfth Night

June 4 – July 9, 2023
(Opening night: Saturday, June 10)

Lowell Davies Festival Theatre

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Kathleen Marshall

One of Shakespeare’s most perfect plays—romance, music, poetry, comedy, swordplay, and more! Shipwrecked and alone in foreign Illyria, young Viola masquerades as her lost twin brother and becomes the go-between for the lovesick Duke Orsino and the beautiful Countess Olivia. Soon Viola finds herself in the middle of a topsy-turvy love triangle with lunacy and laughs on every side. Three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall (Globe’s Much Ado About Nothing, Love’s Labor’s Lost) directs Twelfth Night, one of the Bard’s true comic masterpieces—and the perfect San Diego night under the stars.

Twelfth Night is supported by production sponsors The Lodge at Torrey Pines.

Vicki and Carl Zeiger Insights Seminar: Tuesday, June 6 at 7:00 p.m.

Post Show Forum: Tuesday, June 13; Tuesday, June 20; and Wednesday, June 28.
