ACT presents TWELFTH NIGHT (OR WHAT YOU WILL) by William Shakespeare


Attleboro Community Theatre (ACT) celebrates the Bard’s recent 460th birthday and concludes its 66th season with William Shakespeare’s TWELFTH NIGHT (OR WHAT YOU WILL), directed by Jay Burns. Separated from her twin brother Sebastian in a shipwreck, Viola disguises herself as a boy named Cesario, and becomes a servant to the Duke Orsino. Orsino sends her to woo the Countess Olivia on his behalf, but Olivia instead falls in love with Cesario. Meanwhile Olivia’s drunk uncle, Sir Toby Belch, and his friend, Sir Andrew Aguecheek, cause havoc to the chagrin of Malvolio, Olivia’s steward. Soon Sebastian returns and causes even more confusion, chaos, and comedy.
