Othello, written by William Shakespeare. Othello is an army general. Desdemona his young wife. Having fallen in love and eloped, the happy couple relocate to Cyprus where they intend to live out the rest of their days.

Twelfth Night, written by William Shakespeare. Duke Orsino prepares his stately home for a party at which he intends to woo the Countess Olivia. As fate would have it, a large storm that night erupts and traps them all in the house. Among those house-bound, are a set of identical twins who have been separated and shipwrecked on opposite sides of the Island. Deception and disguises, imprisonment and impersonations, proclamations of love and cross gartering are awash in this stormy black comedy about the peculiar and hysterical goings on in the once quiet town of Illyria.
