TWELFTH NIGHT is regarded as one of Shakespeare’s best loved plays and features heavily the themes of cross dressing and mistaken identity to great comic effect. Set in Illyria on the Adriatic sea it involves Lady Olivia who due to the bereavement of her father and brother will not entertain any suitors, not even Duke Orsino. The Duke sends an intermediary to try and woo her and chooses the boy Cesario who is actually Viola searching for her twin brother Sebastian. Much confusion and much romance ensue in this accessible and entertaining tale. This narrative version was written by Mary & Charles Lamb.
