 Opening November 6, Hart House Theatre is proud to continue its tradition of producing affordable Shakespearean productions for downtown Toronto with the classic comedy, Twelfth Night. Directed by Hart House Theatre alumnus Matthew Gorman and featuring the city's finest emerging talent, Twelfth Night is a prime example of what Hart House Theatre does best. It features professionals paired with trained youth and students in a production that is both compelling and unique.

Shakespeare's beloved comedy begins with a shipwreck and ends with marriages, reunions and some good old-fashioned revenge-with plenty of hijinks and hilarity in between. Featuring some of the Bard's most memorable comedic characters, Twelfth Night is classic comedy at its best, full of mistaken identity, disguise, intrigue and, above all, the search for love.

Matthew Gorman takes the action of the play and puts it all in the cozy confines of a local pub - a familiar backdrop for the sad, the hilarious, the loving and the cruel sides of human nature to express themselves.
