Shakespeare's Twelfth Night - Space Theatre - DPAC, 994 14th St, Denver CO 80202

Love makes fools of us all Hilarious hijinks. Unrequited love. Gender-bending disguises. The struggle is real in this Shakespearean comedy, where the clumsiness of romance is on display in every way. Separated from her twin brother after a shipwreck in Illyria, Viola disguises herself as a man to work in the local household of Duke Orsino. The closer they become, the more Viola gets acquainted with Orsino’s crush, the beautiful noblewoman Olivia. Much to their dismay (and to your delight), the trio is inevitably thrust into a love triangle of mistaken identity and wanton foolishness. Overflowing with quick wit and titillating trysts, this standout play by The Bard is sure to please with its captivating characters and one of his most dynamic heroines.

Ah, Thanksgiving, that most American of Holidays: when families gather to bask in the bounty of the harvest, football, giant balloons—and the legacy of genocide and violent colonial expansion. Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in this wickedly funny satire as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists trip all over themselves to create a politically correct, yet historically accurate , yet dramatically revolutionary, yet accurately represented sand responsibly cast Thanksgiving play for elementary schools…all while navigating aspirations to be successful actors- but not commercially successful- and overall unproblematic white people.
