Or What You Will. Shakespeare comedy of mistaken identity, practical jokes and unrequited love. Rescued from a shipwreck the twins Viola and Sebastian arrive independently in Illyria, both thinking the other is drowned. Viola disguises herself as a boy and finds employment with the Duke who is in love with Olivia. Malvolio is the subject of a cruel joke played on him by Sir Toby Belch (yellow stockings cross-gartered) leading him to believe that Olivia loves him. But Olivia has fallen in love with the disguised Viola, while she is in love with the Duke (following it so far?!).Performers George Ikediashi (Feste), Carly Bawden (Maria), Anita-Joy Uwajeh (Viola), John Pfumojena (Sebastian, Joshua Lacey (Orsino), Katy Owen (Malvolio), Annette McLaughlin (Olivia), Marc Antolin (Sir Andrew Aguecheek), Tony Jayawardena (Sir Toby), Nandi Bhebhe, Pieter Lawman, Kandaka Moore, Theo St Clair.
