Escaping the turbulence of their homeland, Viola and Sebastian risk a perilous journey to Illyria hoping to find security and a new life. When their boat sinks and the twins fear each other dead, the adventure truly begins. Welcome to an Illyria peopled by street musicians, eccentric young affluence, immigrants, and the media-obsessed in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. Interpreted through a lens of social consciousness and supported by the timeless text, this Coeurage Theatre Company production takes a critical look at cultural isolation and the beautiful, dark, and deeply human longing to belong.
