This summer Essential Theatre proudly presents Shakespeare’s delightful comedy - Twelfth Night.

Essential Theatre Co Artistic Director Amanda LaBonte returns to direct this laugh-out-loud comedy, one of her favourites in the canon. Amanda has a wealth of experience performing Shakespeare, and brings a fresh eye to this hilarious yet heartbreaking tale of unrequited love. We also welcome back designer, Amaya Vecellio, to weave her magic on our costumes and bring the world of Ilyria to life.

The cast of 8 professional actors will take you on a joyful ride, as Leura Park Estate transforms into the magical land of Illyria.

After a raging shipwreck, Viola finds herself washed ashore, separated by her twin brother, Sebastian, and alone on the beach of Illyria. This town is familiar, but somewhat strange - a dreamland where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem.

To survive, Viola immerses herself into this new land. She discovers a melancholic Duke, a pair of jovial drunkards, a sullen servant and cross-dressing lovers. Mischief ensues - hearts are tangled, pranks are played, and poor Viola finds herself right in the middle of a love triangle!

Shakespeare beautifully balances the anguish of unrequited love, and the high spirit of clever comedy in this hilarious tale, Twelfth Night
