Press Inquiries: 


This reimagining of Twelfth Night entangles three illicit love triangles across time and space. Their whirlwind pursuit of Eros leads philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein to uncover the physics of longing and test the boundaries of logic. Layer in gender-bending and startling reversals for a spinning, provocative exploration of desire.


Featuring Ben Chase, Lauren Currie Lewis*, and Julia Watt*

With Jessica Cannizzaro, Nerea Duhart, Yonit Friedman, Frankie Maclaughlin, and Sarah Smithton*
