A classical comedy of romantic proportions, Twelfth Night follows Viola (disguised as a male) in her love for Orsino, Orsino in his love for Olivia, and Olivia in her love for the disguised Viola. It is the classic love triangle padded by a hilarious subplot to make Olivia’s pompous steward, Malvolio, look like a total fool.

In what the New York Post called “Shepard’s masterwork” this Pulitzer Prize finalist explores what it means for humans to have a “double nature.” Two estranged brothers, Lee and Austin, meet up in their mother’s Southern California suburban home; Austin to work on his latest screenplay and Lee to scour the surrounding houses for valuable appliances. What ensues over the next several days between the brothers is both riveting and shocking.
