Twelfth Night

William Shakespeare

"My stars shine darkly over me"

When twins Viola and Sebastian are shipwrecked and separated on the strange city of Illyria, the two are forced to assimilate into a heightened world of hedonism and grief, laughter and cruelty. Viola’s attempts to integrate into the privileged centre of this modern city, disguised as Cesario, are complicated when she falls in love with Duke Orsino, who is himself in love with Olivia.

Twelfth Night is a tale of unrequited love and mistaken identity, a brilliant blend of hilarity and melancholy.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement. 

This venue is wheelchair accessible.
