Directed by Ken Prestininzi

Know thyself. Easier said than done. And if Love comes along and refuses every rule and foundation we have used to stand our ego upon? What then? In this fun and free-wheeling adaptation of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, or What You Will, the Theater department looks at the great sea change love plays on our souls when we are washed bereft on the shores of an unknown country. And when we become confused, challenged, disordered, melancholy and giddy, what can we do but play on? Play on!
