‘Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
It’s a mixed up, muddled up, shook-up world’
Shakespeare’s classic comedy of misplaced and thwarted DESIRE.
When Viola gets shipwrecked and decides to dress up as a man, she finds herself in the strange world of Illyria, a world of unbridled DESIRE, where women fall in love with women thinking they’re men, men fall in love with women thinking they’re men, men fall in love with men thinking they’re men, masters marry their maids and servants lust after their mistresses.
in situ:’s talented ensemble explores this seductive and dangerous world of sexual and class ambiguity, peopled by some of Shakespeare’s greatest comic creations.
