Illyria

By Peter Mills, based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night

“Illyria, land of fools – where clarity’s a rarity, and madness rules!”  These are the opening lyrics of this modernized and beautiful musical re-telling of Shakespeare's greatest comedy, Twelfth Night. Capturing the rollicking energy of the play's hilarious hijinks in the mistaken identities, and its deeply felt emotions as it explores the themes of gender roles in society and unrequited love – our season closing production ultimately provides a happy musical theatre ending for the unsuspecting lovers, the clowns, and even the malcontented Malvolio!
