Twelfth Night 2000 – Iowa State University Theatre

by William Shakespeare

November 10-12 and December 1-3, 2000

Fisher Theater – Ames

Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies. The romantic plot includes separated twins, misplaced passions and mistaken identity. Juxtaposed to the romance is the satirical story of a self-deluded steward who dreams of becoming “Count Malvilio” only to to receive his comeuppance at the hands of the merrymakers he wishes to suppress. The two plots combine to create a farce touched with melancholy, mixed throughout with seductively beautiful explorations on the themes of love and time. The Play ends, not with laughter, but with a clown’s sad song.
