 William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” directed by Richard Seer, will run from November 6 through 13 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Globe’s Conrad Prebys Theatre Center.

Shipwrecked on the rocky coast of Illyria, the lovely and plucky Viola disguises herself as a man to protect her honor in this strange land and finds employment as a page in the court of the lovesick Duke Orsino. But just as Viola falls in love with her new boss, the beautiful Olivia – whom Orsino is pursuing – finds herself attracted to this new young man, who’s really Viola in disguise. Meanwhile, the servant Maria and the drunken Sir Toby Belch conspire to enact a riotous revenge on the hilariously presumptuous servant Malvolio. This magical comedy is filled with Shakespeare’s most indelible comedic characters and sidesplitting situations.

Tickets can be purchased online at, by phone at (619) 23-GLOBE or at the box office, located at 1363 Old Globe Way in Balboa Park.
