Twelfth Night – The Story (short version!!): Twins Viola and Sebastian have been shipwrecked and wash up in Ilyria, on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. Each believes the other to be drowned. Viola disguises herself as a young man, Cesario, and gets a job as a manservant for the Duke, Orsino. Orsino is in love with Olivia who is secretly in love with Viola who is secretly in love with Orsino who is confused by his feelings for his new manservant. If this isn’t baffling enough, with the help of a little mischief at the expense of Olivia’s vain and pompous steward, Malvolio, things can only get more so…

Wells Community Theatre was set up at the same time as the theatre festival to encourage local performers to gain confidence by working with professionals Along the wat they may discover that “some of them are born great, others can achieve greatness and a few may have greatness thrust upon them!” (Malvolio Twelfth Night: Act 2 Sc 5)
