OZACT presents TWELFTH NIGHT; the most brilliant of Shakespeare’s comedies. A moving kaleidoscope of mistaken identities, larger than life characters, highly charged situations, swashbuckling duels and flashing wit. Orsino loves Olivia (who won’t give him the time of day). Olivia loves Viola (whom she thinks is a boy), Viola loves Orsino (who doesn’t know she’s a girl). Malvolio loves himself (of course), and Sir Andrew, Sir Toby and Maria love life to the fullest (and its most outrageous).
It’s all hilarious confusion and rollicking laughs in this comedy, from its unforgettable first line to its deliriously comic conclusion, TWELFTH NIGHT is a masterpiece of disguise, deception and desire. Bring your picnic & follow the fun in the grounds of Coolart Wetlands & Homestead! Booking essential – tickets do sell out quickly!
