Short Shakespeare!
Twelfth Night

Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s energetic, 75-minute abridged production of Twelfth Night will introduce 40,000 students to Shakespeare—at the Courtyard Theater on Navy Pier and on tour to schools across Chicagoland and the Midwest, supporting and enriching the curriculum by adding a dynamic complement to classroom study. Separated from her twin brother in a shipwreck, the resilient Viola adopts a male disguise and enters into the service of Duke Orsino—only to find herself in the middle of a triangle of unrequited love. Saturday public performances on Navy Pier welcome families to experience the play, followed by a facilitated discussion with the actors.
