Each year the Actors From The London Stage (AFTLS) cast a touring company from among Britain’s finest actors to bring to American colleges and universities a lively text-centered production of two of Shakespeare’s most well- known plays. This fall the AFTLS will be touring Twelfth Night, Shakespeare’s comedy of mistaken identity whose protagonist Viola must disguise herself as a man to woo the moody noblewoman Olivia for the melancholy Duke Orsino, but finds herself in a love triangle complicated by gender confusion. Using only five actors who each play multiple roles, the AFTLS company is famous for its robust physical and vocal performances of Shakespeare’s works. Free and open to the public.
