Set in the roaring 20s, Twelfth Night tells the tale of fraternal twins, Viola and Sebastian, separated in a strange new land. Having survived a shipwreck and believing her brother Sebastian has been lost, Viola falls hopelessly in love with Duke Orsino and disguises herself as a man to enter his services. Synetic's take on the Shakespeare's Twelfth Night will be a confluence of comedy and tragedy; a social commentary that brings laughter to sobering truth. Synetic co-founders Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili will direct and star in this production, respectively.
