Event description


Shakespeare Walla Walla presents the Rude Mechanicals's TWELFTH NIGHT

TWELFTH NIGHT is Shakespeare's topsy-turvy dark comedy about gender and the lengths we go for love.

The storyline has inspired plenty of remakes and adaptations, including the popular teen flick "She's the Man."

Our production is set in the aftermath of World War I and right before the Roaring Twenties jump into high gear. Dr. Emily Rollie, from Central Washington University, directs this fantastically funny and thoughtful production.

Location: Whitman College Outdoor Amphitheatre

Festival lawn seating. Blankets and picnics encouraged.

Time: Doors open at 6 pm. The curtain is at 7 pm.

Run-Time: Two hours, including a 15-minute intermission.

Whose Rude Mechanicals?

The Rude Mechanicals are a theatre company in southeastern Washington state, dedicated to the production of Shakespeare and Shakespeare-inspired plays.

Why "The Rude Mechanicals"?

The Rude Mechanicals were a theatre company in one of Shakespeare's plays, A Midsummer Night's Dream. The members of the company were all amateurs, laborers and craftsmen by day (hence, mechanicals) and actors by night. Because our company is also made up of community members who hold down day jobs in addition to their theatrical pursuits, we thought the name was appropriate.


What can I bring into the event?

Blankets and picnics are encouraged. Low profile (sand/beach) chairs are okay if seated in or near the back or not an obstruction to those behind you.

Is this production appropriate for all ages?

There is some comedic stage combat, and Viola has to disguise herself as a boy. There is also some drunkenness, but nothing gratuitous or violent or overly sexual in this production. Please use your discretion. RM suggests upper elementary and above, at the same time an eight-year-old thought it was hilarious.
