I’m directing a student production of Twelfth Night right now, and I’m having a lot of fun thinking about what the play’s title might be if it were re-written by each different character.
OLIVIA – So Many Men Want To Marry Me
ORSINO – Friendzoned For Seven Years
VIOLA – Whoops! Let’s Just See How This Plays Out?
SEBASTIAN – My Dead Sister Shows Up To My Random Wedding
SEA CAPTAIN – I’m Glad My Ship Getting Wrecked Is Such An Effective Plot Device
SIR TOBY – 99 Bottles Of Beer On The Wall
MALVOLIO – The Tragedy of Malvolio
MARIA – Stop Ruining The Moment, Malvolio
SIR ANDREW AGUECHEEK – I Have No Idea What I’m Doing
FABIAN – Is This A Comedy? Because Everyone’s Being Mean
ANTONIO – Antonio & Sebastian
FOOL – While We’re Talking, Let Me Offer You Some Free Advice
