Twelfth Night
by Overtime Theater

Feb. 14 - Mar. 07
Fridays-Sundays

 Anytime you hear “Shakespeare comedy” you’re guaranteed at least one marriage and quite likely a case of mistaken identity. Twelfth Night is no exception, featuring twins, separated and feared dead by each other after a shipwreck. The sister takes on a male persona to survive, thus allowing for the mistaken identity, and comedic antics ensue. 

 This production is contemporary and metatheatrical so the focus can remain, as in Shakespeare’s own time, on the performances, the music, the characters, the humor, and especially the language, all of which is his. 

 

Interview of Emily Fitzgerald by Kurt Gardner, ArtScene SA, February 7, 2020

 

Director Emily Fitzgerald is most often found directing her original works, the most recent of which were And Then There Were Some, a multiple-ending play, and the modern fairy tale No Rescue Required. Next up she will be half of a writing team with William M. Razavi for their sci-fi double feature, Evil Scientists Love a Parade, and return to solo writing/directing for the fall’s sequel to her ATAC award-winning play Creatures of the Night. This is her second time to direct Twelfth Night and she can attest it is a whole new adventure each re-visit.
