Shakespeare’s "Twelfth Night"
From Boston Conservatory Theater Ensemble
December 8 - 11

The Boston Conservatory Theater Ensemble will present one of William Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, "Twelfth Night," from December 8 - 11 at the newly-renovated Boston Conservatory Theater, located at 31 Hemenway Street in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood. The production will be directed by Boston Conservatory faculty member Doug Lockwood.

The beguiling comedy follows the romantic adventures of Viola and her twin Sebastian, shipwrecked in the enchanted dukedom of Illyria. The time-honored story of cross-dressing and mistaken identity is all in the name of love. The show bristles with antics, hijinks and beloved characters, both prudish and crudish.

Lockwood commented, “Our production of 'Twelfth Night' spills out of Feste's 1957 nightclub act onto the Illyrian shore. With a dose of Douglas Sirk and a heap of sexual ambiguities, we're finding great strains of melancholy and ridiculousness in this beautiful comedy.”

Lockwood is a founding member of the Actors’ Shakespeare Project and has performed in "King Lear" (in Boston and Off-Broadway at LaMama in June 2006), "Measure for Measure" and "Richard III." He has performed Wallace Shawn’s one person show, "The Fever," in 44 living rooms from 2002 to the present. In Boston, he has performed in "Twelfth Night," "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead," and "The Waverly Gallery" (New Rep Theatre). He also performed two summers at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. At the Boston Conservatory, he has directed "Landscape of the Body" and a concert version of "The Two Gentlemen of Verona."
