Valley Shakespeare Company is excited to announce its plans for the Summer 2021 Season!

We will be picking up where we left off—with a trip to Illyria and one of the bard’s most celebrated comedies!! Twelfth Night (Or What You Will)

Uproarious shenanigans, gender-bending disguises, ill-fated desires. The fun is all too close to home in one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, where stumbling romance and misunderstanding are in full bloom. Separated from her twin brother after a shipwreck in Illyria, Viola disguises herself as a man to work in the local household of Duke Orsino. The closer they become, the more Viola gets acquainted with Orsino’s crush, the beautiful noblewoman Olivia. Much to their dismay (and to your delight), the trio is inevitably thrust into a love triangle of mistaken identity and wanton foolishness.

Valley Shakespeare Company will be resetting this classic tale of love and misunderstanding during the early days of prohibition in the Coney Island Boardwalk of Atlantic City.

Overflowing with quick wit and titillating trysts, this standout play by The Bard is sure to please with its captivating characters and one of his most dynamic heroines.
