Scrappy Shakespeare

  • Wedge at Foundation 5 Foundy Street Asheville, NC, 28801 United States (map)

With musical styles of the 1950s and 60s, a completely immersive style, and a level of controlled chaos, this production is part concert, part party, and 100% raucous fun.

Viola and Sebastian are twins, shipwrecked and separated in a strange land, each assuming the other has drowned. Viola decides her best protection is to dress as a boy (because, I dunno, it's Shakespeare) and enter into the service of Duke Orsino. What seems like a straightforward plan descends into chaos as she becomes entangled in a love triangle (or even more complicated shape) and swept up in the devious plots of courtly villains who seek entertainment at any cost.

Admission is FREE! But we appreciate your donations.

This program is funded in part by Chapman Cultural Center, its donors, the County and City of Spartanburg and the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the John and Susan Bennett Memorial Arts Fund of the Coastal Community Foundation of SC.
