“If music be the food of love, play on!” In Shakespeare’s immortal comedy, we follow the shipwrecked Viola and her twin, Sebastian, in this tale of mistaken identity and misplaced love.

Written at the height of the Great Depression, George Bernard Shaw’s ahead-of- its-time satire on the idle rich mixes high comedy with political debate and flights of dreamlike whimsy. When an indulged patient is persuaded to run away with two glamorous jewel thieves, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery and liberation. Examining popular culture, organized religion, colonialism and the family unit, this Shavian classic provides insight, entertainment and much food for thought.
