Believed to have been written around the turn of the 17th century, the play follows the journeys of castaway twins in an unfamiiar land of love triangles and duels.
One of twins, and one of Shakespeare’s greatest heroines, Viola, makes profound discoveries about the nature of love, loss and identity.
The Shakespeare On Tour production includes a couple of walk-on roles where audience volunteers can literally get into the act. At the end of the hour-long performance the cast will take questions from the audience.
The show is suitable for all ages, is free, and is open to everyone. No advance registration is necessary.
It plays at the Main Library, 1550 Oak Street, Alameda, on Sunday, October 30th at 2 p.m.
