November Event
Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” – November 19, 2016

Shakespeare’s heartfelt comedy “Twelfth Night” follows the journeys of castaway twins who are separated in an unfamiliar land full of antics, love triangles, and dangerous duels.

The San Francisco Shakespeare Festival will perform an abbreviated, family-friendly version of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. In this beloved, gender-bending play, twins are separated by a shipwreck, everyone falls in love with the wrong person…at first. And a pompous man, “a trout that must be caught with tickling,” has his ego deservedly punctured.

Where: Cupertino Community Hall, 10350 Torre Ave., Cupertino, CA 95014 United States

When: Saturday, November 19, 2016, at 3:30 p.m.
