Summer 2023 - Twelfth Night
Island Stage Left
“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.
