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.

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.

Tuesday January 5, 2016 through Sunday January 31, 2016

First performance will be on Twelfth Night, Tuesday January 5th. After that, the show will run on weekends only

Twelfth Night, or What You Will is a comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written around 1601–02 as a Twelfth Night’s entertainment for the close of the Christmas season. The play centers on the twins Viola and Sebastian, who are separated in a shipwreck. Viola (who is disguised as a boy) falls in love with Duke Orsino, who in turn is in love with the Countess Olivia. Upon meeting Viola, Countess Olivia falls in love with her thinking she is a man. The play expanded on the musical interludes and riotous disorder expected of the occasion, with plot elements drawn from the short story “Of Apollonius and Silla” by Barnabe Rich, based on a story by Matteo Bandello. The first recorded performance was on 2 February 1602, at Candlemas, the formal end of Christmastide in the year’s calendar.

Performances run weekends from Tuesday January 5, 2016 through Sunday January 31, 2016 with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 for general admission.
