BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
DIRECTED BY YURY URNOV
June 6–25, 2023
The Wilma boldly reimagines Shakespeare’s beloved romantic comedy, set on a beach in summertime.
Twelfth Night is a celebration of life and love. It’s about getting to the other side of grief, finding ways out of solitude, and making peace with ourselves. Director Yury Urnov
Under Co-Artistic Director Yury Urnov’s direction, this classic transforms into a modern tale about gender fluidity. One performer plays separated twins Viola and Sebastian as one character. “Viola finds a lost brother in themselves,” Urnov explained.
The story also features HotHouse Company members as the colorful characters Olivia, who is mourning her own brother; Malvolio, Olivia’s ambitious steward; and happy-in-his-drinking Sir Toby Belch.
