The third production of the 2016-2017 University Theatre season, “Twelfth Night,” opens on Friday and will be running in the Hemsley Theatre live for only three weekends. As a classic comedy by William Shakespeare, “Twelfth Night” would be a great weekend getaway from your mundane college life by traveling to 17th century Illyria, where a twin brother and sister, Sebastian and Viola, respectively, reunite after they are separated in a shipwreck. Both thought they lost each other, and both have experienced different lives and identities than what they once had. “Twelfth Night” will be both an engaging and relaxing performance, both with the intriguing adventures that the hero and heroine take and the variety of people they encounter on their journeys. The witty punchlines with wisdom—thanks to Shakespeare’s great gift in using language—and the hyperboles will certainly make you laugh.
