Twelfth Night

The HandleBards are cycling actors who pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costumes in their saddlebags.  Join them here at Shakespeare North Playhouse for a bicycle-powered, laugh-out-loud production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.

And what’s the play about? Duke Orsino is in love with Lady Olivia, but she won’t have anything to do with suitors. Viola is shipwrecked and believes her twin brother Sebastian to be dead. Meanwhile, a bunch of Olivia’s servants plot to make a fool out of her pompous butler, Malvolio.

There’s drunkenness, frivolity and cross-dressing a plenty.

So, get ready for outrageous amounts of energy, a huge chunk of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.
