This Month!

January 2022

Check out the events below to learn more about Play On Shakespeare and our mission to actively engage new audiences through modern translations of Shakespeare’s work.

Ashland High School

Twelfth Night
Translated by Alison Carey
Directed by Jonathan Luke Stevens

This event has been postponed—stay tuned for further information.

After months of training in our Play On Shakespeare Masterclass program, Ashland High School will present Alison Carey’s translation of Twelfth Night this month! A classic Shakespearean play, Twelfth Night takes place on the coast of Illyria where Viola is washed ashore, her twin brother lost to sea. As Viola enters the city, she becomes entangled in a comedic affair of mistaken identity and love between the households of Olivia and Orsino.

Limited seating; Vaccination card required.
