But Olivia has fallen in love with the disguised Viola, while she is in love with the Duke (following it so far?!).Performers Faith Omole (Viola), Kevin Harvey (Orsino), Mina Anwar (Maria), Kate Kennedy (Olivia), Anthony Calf (Malvolio), Kate O'Donnell (Feste), Kate Young (musician), Joe Gravil (guitar), Aaron Anthony, Simon Armstrong, Harry Attwell, Daniel Francis-Swaby, Tarek Merchant, Jill Myers.
