About Twelfth Night:
A classic tale that has been exploring gender lines and bisexuality for centuries, StageQ brings a non-binary perspective to Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity. A ship is wrecked on the rocks: Viola is washed ashore but their twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on their own, Viola steps out to explore a new land. They are soon caught between a lovelorn duke and lovesick lady. Get ready for twists, turns, and love triangles only The Bard himself can concoct!
