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!
Directed by Tommy Hegarty, Assistant Directed by Lillianna Righter
