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 Hannah Miller CDG (casting), Michael Benz (Sebastian), Christopher Chilton (Sea Captain/Priest), Jonathan Christie (Valentine/Officer 2), Dona Croll (Maria), Jake Fairbrother (Orsino), David Fielder (Sir Toby Belch), Colm Gormley (Fabian), Ben Hall (Curio/Officer 1), Rebeca Johnson (Olivia), Brian Protheroe (Feste), Rose Reynolds (Viola), Hugh Ross (Malvolio), Milo Twomey (Sir Andrew Aguecheek), Ross Waiton (Antonio).
