What You Will
by William Shakespeare
directed by Ellen Bergman
Count Orsino loves Lady Olivia. She, however, claims not to be interested in love, all the while falling for Orsino’s messenger of love, Cesario. But Cesario is in fact a young woman, Viola, working as Orsino’s page - and helplessly in love with him herself. All this sets the stage for all the trials and tribulations in Shakespeare’s turbulent comedy of errors “Twelfth Night or What You Will”. Olivia’s uncle, Sir Toby, who lives – and drinks! – on her property, his simpleton friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek, Olivia’s self-absorbed stewart Malvolio, her cheeky maid Maria, Viola’s brother Sebastian, supposedly lost at sea, and last but not least Feste, the fool, contribute all they can to the chaos and mayhem that ensues.
