Twelfth Night

Join the Lord Chamberlain’s Men this summer to see Shakespeare’s best loved romantic comedy, Twelfth Night.  A joyous tale of love, longing, laughter and mischief, mayhem and mistaken identity, set in fair Illyria.

“O time! Thou must untangle this, not I; It is too hard a knot for me to untie!”
