“Who is he? He’s a she? Can she love thee? Hey, what about me? O yellow cross gartered madness unfolds, unravels and abounds in this most delicious of Shakespeare’s masterpiece comedies – a play designed to unleash ribald fun, romance and zesty hysteria – and the gender identities questioned couldn’t be more pertinent today. Ending as all good comedies do in marriage, the road to happiness is fraught with rejection, duplicity, disguises and moments of sublime grace touching on the timeless themes of compassion, forgiveness and the bittersweet, gorgeous transience of life and love in the world.” — Josh Gladstone, on “Twelfth Night”
