Shipwrecked off the coast of the mythical land of Illyria, a young woman named Viola (Seana McKenna) and her twin brother, Sebastian (Ernest Harrop), each believe the other has drowned. Disguising herself as a boy, Viola takes the name Cesario and enters the service of Illyria's Duke Orsino (Colm Feore). She is sent to woo the Countess Olivia (Maria Ricossa) on Orsino's behalf, but Olivia instead falls in love with Cesario, now love's unwilling messenger. From here the network of misguided confusions soon overtakes virtually every one of the play's characters. Viewers will find this Stratford Shakespeare Festival production not only entertaining but also ideal for studies in Shakespeare and dramatic art.
