William Shakespeare
Adapted by Kate Pantry


At EYT, we like to do Shakespeare differently. 

This adaptation of Twelfth Night is heavily influenced by the American teen movies of the late 90s and early 2000s, but will still be performed using Shakespeare’s poetic language of the Elizabethan era.  For this production, Ilyria is a high school. Duke is the captain of the basketball team attempting to ask Olivia to the Senior Prom. Viola is the new girl who just wants to play basketball and the only way she can is to disguise herself as a boy and help Duke. The other characters all fit into our adapted time and place of an American high school in the early noughties.

The text has been cut down from the original version with some characters merged together to support our adaptation.
