Synetic Theater Presents Twelfth Night

On Stage: Through August 7th

Crystal City (Arlington, VA) – After garnering 11 Helen Hayes Award nominations, Synetic Theater’s 2014 hit, Twelfth Night, is back by popular demand. Set in the Roaring ’20s and inspired by the silent comedy of Keaton and Chaplin, Twelfth Night tells the tale of fraternal twins, Viola and Sebastian, separated in a strange new land. Having survived a shipwreck and believing her brother Sebastian has been lost, Viola falls hopelessly in love with Duke Orsino and disguises herself as a man to enter his services.
