By Greenbelt Arts Center, Online.

Log in to a world where comedy and tragedy wear twin pajama pants. Where love, loss, and friendship must evolve in isolation and be filtered through your screen. Where duels are settled with game controllers, not swords, and Alexa plays “the food of love” on command. This is the new world, and in this world, you can be whoever you want (as long as you’re at home). This is I.L.L.Y.R.I.A.

Come see the Maryland Shakespeare Player’s production of Twelfth Night! The Bard’s classic comedy grabs some giggle water and showcases some goofs and lollygags in the Roaring Twenties. The 1920’s in America were times of great precarity. Stuck between the First World War and the Great Depression, Americans enjoyed a period of unchecked wealth, culture, and social change. Twelfth Night exemplifies this precarity — characters are constantly almost running into each other, plots are almost falling apart, all against a backdrop of wealth and high social status. Much like in the ’20s, the role of women in society is questioned and subverted throughout the play.

No tickets required, general admission!

Twelfth Night at Clarice Smith, Feb 26 & 27

Twelfth Night at Clarice Smith, Feb 26 & 27

Filter in Association with the Royal Shakespeare Company presents
Twelfth Night
by William Shakespeare

Fri, Feb 26, 2016 . 8:00PM
Sat, Feb 27, 2016 . 8:00PM

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Dance Theatre, General Admission.

Warning: loud noises.

A venerable institution teams up with an upstart theater company to create an explosive, radically-cut, fast-paced version of Shakespeare’s comedy of mistaken identity in which nothing is hidden. Everything is revealed. The stage is awash with cables and instruments, costume changes occur in front of the audience and performance decisions are made on the hoof.

Combined, the live chemistry between actors, audience, text and sound explode into a vital and exhilarating theatrical experience. In Filter’s hands, Twelfth Night is constantly shifting and never the same twice.

“Filter’s lo-fi, 90min remix of Shakespeare’s comedy infects the audience with the play’s celebratory spirit of madness from the start…You leave feeling slightly changed yourself.” — The Metro (London)

Tickets: Regular: $25, Student: $10.
