Illyria is back!
This summer, let the award-winning company whisk you away to a mysterious coastal kingdom as they present Twelfth Night. However, under the idyllic tropical sky, everything is not as it seems. Watch as a tale of romance, revenge, and mistaken identities unfolds with hilarious consequences! Pack a picnic and fall in love with another unforgettable season of outdoor theatre. With singing, sword fights and silliness, you couldn’t wish for more than this.
In the mysterious coastal kingdom of Illyria, it’s a man’s world – but not if Viola has anything to do with it! Shipwrecked and washed-up, she must use her quick wit to survive. Disguising herself as a man, she begins work for Duke Orsino. The lovesick Orsino sends Viola to woo lady Olivia on his behalf, but the disguise is so convincing that Olivia falls for Viola rather than Orsino. Watch as a tale of romance, revenge, and mistaken identities unfolds with hilarious consequences. It could all end in tears – even if most of them are of laughter! Pack a picnic and fall in love with another unforgettable season of outdoor theatre. With singing, sword fights and silliness, you couldn’t wish for more than this. Suitable for ages 8+

Open-Air Workshop for schools
Love, Identity and Madness I Friday 8 September (16+) I Gardens of Raadhuis de Paauw
Attention teachers! STET Education’s annual open air workshop is back in Wassenaar! Since a whole-night Shakespeare is often too long and daunting for teenagers we have devised this interactive workshop for your students! Illyria will illustrate key scenes from Twelfth Night and students will participate dynamically, helped by professional actors. Your students will gain insight into one of Shakespeare’s most frequently performed comedies and even get a chance to hop on stage if they like. More information here.
