Nine actresses shape this great Shakespearian comedy about desire and gender. Who do we fall for, and why? Can we resist our desires? Can we truly hide them?

The plot unfolds in Illyria, a sad, divided kingdom on the Mediterranean coast. On one side is Olivia, who mourns her father and brother, and on the other is Orsino, a powerful man head-over-heels in love with Olivia, who constantly rejects his advances. The kingdom is gradually shrivelling, until a certain Viola washes up on its shores. Shipwrecked on the Illyrian coast, she believes her twin brother died at sea. She dresses as a man and assumes the name Cesario to get into the court of Duke Orsino, with whom she falls deeply in love. Orsino orders her to court Olivia in his place. And so it is Olivia’s turn to fall in love with Cesario-Viola, an androgynous being who fascinates everybody. The perfect love triangle.

Another story is playing out at the same time. Malvolio, Olivia’s devoted servant, hides from the world his profound desire to marry his mistress and reach high office from the world. Seeing that, Toby, Andrew, Feste and Maria seek to drive Malvolio mad, organizing a trap in which Malvolio is humiliated like never before when his desires are laid bare.

"Methinks I feel this youth's perfections

With an invisible and subtle stealth

To creep in at mine eyes. Well, let it be."
