The University of Toledo Department of Theatre & Film proudly presents Shakespeare’s comedy TWELFTH NIGHT February 20-22 and February 27-March 1 in the UT Center for Performing Arts Center Theatre. Theatre faculty member Cornel Gabara will direct. His extensive experience acting in and directing Shakespearean plays, plus his great affection for the bard’s work, should guarantee an insightful and delightful performance.

A shipwrecked Viola, believing herself alone in the world, dresses as a man in order to earn a living. Humorous and inevitable complications arise when she falls in love with a man who doesn’t know she’s a woman, and a woman who thinks she’s a man falls for her. Gabara says the humor of the play reflects the timeless search for love and how appearances can be comically deceiving.
