'An energetic cast in a magical setting.'  – Broadway World

As twilight falls on the beautiful surroundings of Kew Gardens, enjoy a tale of passion, revenge and laughter.

Better yet, all this is accompanied by a live band and a gorgeous, 1930s jazz score. What could be more enchanting?

While the lovesick Duke Orsino pines for the beautiful Countess Olivia, a young woman named Viola is shipwrecked in Illyria. Between the three, a tangled love-triangle emerges. Throw in a raucous trio, the riotous Sir Toby Belch and a ridiculous case of mistaken identity, and watch as the midsummer madness unfolds.

Brought into a 1930’s setting, Shakespeare’s bittersweet comedy Twelfth Night offers the perfect excuse for a picnic with friends set against the beautiful backdrop of Kew Gardens.

Join us to relax, laugh, and sway your way through one of Shakespeare’s most loved comedies.
