Emit returns to IRL with a binary-breaking production 12th Night!
Saturday, November 12 and Sunday, November 13
El Barrio's Artspace PS 109
215 East 99th St
After being washed ashore in Illyria, Viola disguises themselves as a man named Cesario and finds themselves in a love triangle between Orsino, the Duke of Illyria, and Olivia, the Lady of Illyria. A series of shenanigans challenges Viola's ability to maintain their disguise while they interact with the intricacies of Illyrian society. This adaptation challenges the gender binary by presenting Viola as a non-binary individual forced into a binary world.
Fun for all, crafted for ages 10+
