‘If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction…’

In the kingdom of Illyria, courtly love is rife, but far from simple. Orsino loves Olivia, Olivia loves Cesario - who is in fact Viola in disguise - who in her turn loves Orsino. Add Viola’s identical twin brother Sebastian, the sycophantic steward Malvolio and a couple of mischievous knights into the mix, and chaos ensues. 

In a production unlike anything the Edinburgh University Shakespeare Company has done before, witness Shakespeare’s greatest comedy played out in fully authentic Elizabethan costume and accompanied by live original music; it is truly not to be missed.
