Shakespeare’s hilarious courtly comedy of mistaken identity, lust, cross-dressing and farce is told in the beautiful neo-classical setting of Downing College garden.

She disguises herself as a boy and becomes a page in the service of Orsino, the Duke, who she loves on sight. Try and keep up with the intrigues and comic turns in this masterpiece!
