“What are you?
What would you?”
A wave crashes onto the shores of Illyria washing up Viola but not her twin brother Sebastian. Determined to survive on her own she steps valiantly out to explore.
With her stormy arrival a darkly strange land is turned upside down, as a whirlwind of mistaken identities, mismatched lovers, naughtiness and passion collide. There’s new life, fresh love and a world of complications and possibilities that suggest nothing will ever be the same again.
The new Everyman springs into life with Shakespeare’s anarchic tale of love, loss and transformation.
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Gemma Bodinetz
Presented by Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse
