What You Will
What You Will
By James Zager.

Cast: 5m., 2w. (1 narrator which may be played by male or female.) What happens when the young Viola finds herself shipwrecked and decides to disguise herself as her twin brother Sebastian? What doesn't happen! This contemporary version of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night uses pop culture to bring one of the Bard's best mixed-gender comedies to life. Feste carries a boom box, Olivia is a fashion model and the Duke is a body builder. Malvolio remains his snotty self, and Toby and Andrew find hilarious new ways to cause trouble. A wonderfully nonthreatening way to introduce young audiences to the complexity of classic literature. Costume and prop requirements are minimal, and the Elizabethan use of Feste as the narrator makes other technical needs practically nonexistent. You can stage in natural light, using a single bench! Bare stage w/ props. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
