When Viola is shipwrecked in an unfamiliar land, they disguise themselves as a man setting off a chain of events that lead them, and everyone they encounter, on an exciting and often hilarious journey of self-discovery in this well-loved Shakespeare comedy.
This production explores, explicitly and in-depth, the beautiful and exciting journeys of all of the characters in this heartwarming and raucously funny play, to discover who they really are, what they really want, and break the shackles of expectation for their gender and sexuality that society has held them in for too long. Join us for this outdoor Twelfth Night filled with laughter, love, music, and stunningly gorgeous language.

About the Artists
Indecorous Theatre Productions roots itself in “Classical Theatre”, an art form that, in the modern era, has been claimed by a social elite, reserved for those blessed with enough culture or education or class. This, in our opinion, is bullshit. Sure Elizabeth loved her some Billy Shakespeare, but the bread on his table was bought by the people who paid to stand in the dirt, laugh at some dick jokes and cry about love and betrayal.
At Indecorous Theatre Productions our mission is to take away the gated community feel from these Classics and make them accessible and available to the people for which they were written. These stories are for everyone and for today. They still resonate and grow and change. Using the beauty of these texts that have beaten time we want to tell new stories with new bodies and open up the conversation. Because at the end of the day, this work, these words, and art are about real people and all the diversity and change and indecorous energy real people create.
