Summer 2023 - Twelfth Night

Island Stage Left

Twelfth Night

“Twelfth Night” is a brilliant comedy of crossed wires and thwarted desires. Shakespeare invented some of his most irresistible characters for this wild party: Malvolio, the pompous, domineering major-domo who exasperates everyone around him; Sir Toby Belch, the boisterous drunken cousin who never met a piece of trouble he didn’t like; Feste, the jester whose sly wit delivers inconvenient truths; and Viola, the plucky young woman who disguises herself as a boy for her own safety and succeeds a little too well. Island Stage Left has assembled an exceptional cast this year including actors drawn from professional theater in Portland, Seattle, Ashland, and points east, alongside ISL’s Daniel Mayes and some highly talented islanders.

Admission is free; donations are gratefully accepted. Showtimes: Thursday through Sunday at 8pm, July 20 through August 20. No performance July 29.

Island Stage Left, 1062 Wold Road, San Juan Island. (360) 378-5649

All performances are outdoors. Chairs are provided. Please dress warmly and bring a blanket and/or warm clothes (even a parka) for when the sun goes down.



Since Island Stage Left offers all its performances free of charge, we do not sell tickets or take reservations (unless you are a member of the Star Circle), although donations are always appreciated and are essential to the longevity of the company.


Seating is on a first come, first served basis and arriving at least 15 minutes early is always a good idea especially for the indoor shows.


In the summer, our outdoor performances have chairs set up, and also space for you to bring your own chairs if you prefer, plus space for blankets and sleeping bags close to the stage.


The request to bring warm clothes and blankets is to keep you warm, as the temperature can drop 20 degrees on some summer nights.
We look forward to seeing you!
