by William Shakespeare
Directed by Sara Thigpen
June 16th-July 15th, 2018
The 20th Anniversary Production of Free Outdoor Shakespeare in New York's Central Park!
It begins at night, with a shipwreck. All are lost, save one...a valiant woman washed ashore in a strange country. In an instant, Viola becomes the person she needs to be...in disguise.
She serves the Duke, and discovers a passion in her heart as strange as the country she now inhabits. But Duke Orsino loves another. And so Viola becomes the Duke's messenger, delivering his love to another Olivia. Can she do it? Should she? And what becomes of all of them when Viola returns to her "woman's weeds" ?
To settle all, Viola may have to outdrink Sir Toby and Sir Andrew, outwit Feste, and outmaneuver Malvolio if she has any hope of setting true love right!
Shakespeare's celebratory comedy is presented with Free Admission on the lawn in Central Park June 16th-July 15th. Performances on Saturday and Sundays at 2pm.
