Viola dresses up as a boy after being shipwrecked in Illyria where she acts as the go between for Count Orsino and the Countess Olivia which gets her into a crazy love triangle!
The play will be held at the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre (outdoors) from June 21st to July 26th. Tickets start at $29. More information about the play and purchasing tickets can be found at the Old Globe’s website.
