Pig Iron Theatre Company's production of Twelfth Night, Or What You Will

Twelfth Night, Or What You Will

Drunks. Mistaken Identities. Tubas. And Shakespeare.
“a lovely and even magical night at the theatre. A combination of excellent design, wonderful Balkan-inspired music, and physically engaged actors has created a production that has a palpable energy.” - The Huffington Post

Welcome to an uproarious world of drunkards and wine drenched parties, depressive noblemen and dueling musicians, idiots and veteran jesters, religious zealots and erotic misunderstandings, performed to the beat of a live Balkan band. Pig Iron uses its highly physical performance style to ignite one of Shakespeare’s most wicked comedies, and infuses his wordplay with an immediacy that is alive, funny, and unpredictable.

The creation of Pig Iron's staging of Twelfth Night has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the William Penn Foundation.
