On the 12th night of Christmas your true love brings to me, many kinds of pasta, a butler braying, and one golden ring. By award-winning playwrightPatrick Thomas McCarthy (Fresh Fruit Festival Outstanding Playwright 2012 & 2013) 12th NIGHTed comically catapults double sets of orphaned twins into Little Italy's Palazzo Earnrighto, home to the widowed entrepreneur Olivia Ruttate Earnrighto & her wacky family. Sexual confusion & mistaken identity run rampant, as this 12th NIGHTed whips its characters into a farcical frenzy. Imagine Shakespeare's TWELFTH NIGHT shot from a confetti cannon. Come back with us to 12th Night, January 5th, 1967 & let the famiglia of the Palazzo Earnrighto make you an offer you can't refuse. And who's that posing for Holy Pictures? Find out in 12th NIGHTed.
