Twelfe Night in 50 words or less:

Orsino loves Olivia (unrequitedly). Twins, Viola and Sebastian, are shipwrecked. Viola cross-dresses, works for Orsino, and Olivia falls in love with her/him. Olivia's dr-uncle and friends trick Malvolio into thinking Olivia loves him. Olivia (confused) marries Sebastian. Twins reunite, Malvolio's gulling and Viola's gender are revealed, Orsino proposes to Viola.

OPS Fest is proud to bring admission-free Shakespeare back to the Portland Public Parks this year. The OPS Fest company of skilled, flexible actors will perform with occasional interruptions of songs, dances, and sketches throughout. Shows begin at 7pm and the audience is welcome to arrive during the hour before to watch the pregame dance & fight rehearsals. Children, picnics and leashed pups are always welcome. In this fan-favorite production, all roles are played by trans- and nonbinary-identifying actors.
