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 AGUECHEEKI 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
