Viola loves the Count Orsino, which is awkward because he’s her boss and he thinks that she’s a guy called Cesario. Orsino loves the Lady Olivia, which is awkward because she has sworn off men, but has fallen for his messenger boy, Cesario. This is awkward because, as aforesaid, Cesario is actually a woman in disguise. Andrew Aguecheek loves Olivia, which is less awkward and more wretched, and Malvolio is about to find out he loves her, which, as her butler, is not the done thing.
The Young Company is delighted to present Shakespeare’s most famous comedy celebrating love and life in all its excesses and absurdity. Anarchy and music abound in this, the most complicated of love triangles.
