Product Description

Set in a topsy-turvy world , this comedy devises a romantic plot around separated twins, misplaced passions, and mistaken identity. Interwoven is the satirical story of a self-deluded steward who dreams of becoming "Count Malvolio" only to receive his comeuppance at the hands of the merrymakers he wishes to suppress. The two plots combine to create a farce touched with melancholy, mixed throughout with seductively beautiful explorations on the themes of love and time, and the play ends, not with laughter, but with a clown's sad song.
