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
