Upstart Crows of Santa Fe present Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, a delightful comedy of displaced persons, misplaced love, and “Nothing that is so, is so.”
It begins with courtly love, a shipwreck, a girl pretending to be a boy, a cranky steward, a drunken uncle, a courtly Fool.
As in all Shakespeare's comedies, however, there is more going on than meets the eye. This comedic farce holds notes of melancholy, longing, and questions about the nature of love; it is full of beautiful language, hilarious physical comedy, songs, and wit, as well as epic sword fights choreographed by fight director Ambrose Ferber. Join us!
