        What You Will

What You Will

Feste returns to Illyria to seek reemployment with the Lady Olivia, but when he is openly humiliated by her chief steward Malvolio, he is filled with rage and plunges into a revenge fantasy that encompasses reality. Feste's anger-fuelled tempest wrecks the ship carrying twins Viola and Sebastian, and while both are saved, they each believe the other to be dead. Without her brother's legal protection, Viola decides to make her own way in the world by disguising herself as the serving boy Cesario, and when she finds employment with the Duke Orsino she enters a complicated web of love and madness. Adapted from William Shakespeares Twelfth Night, and featuring a beautiful, soaring score by Oliver Mawdsley, What You Will offers a new perspective on an old classic.
