Event Details

Orsino loves Olivia (unrequitedly). Twins, Viola and Sebastian, are shipwrecked. Viola cross-dresses, works for Orsino, and Olivia falls in love with her/him. Olivia’s dr-uncle and friends trick Malvolio into thinking Olivia loves him. Olivia (confused) marries Sebastian. Twins reunite, Malvolio’s gulling and Viola’s gender are revealed, Orsino proposes to Viola.

About the 2021 Season:
OPS Fest is proud to bring admission-free Shakespeare back to the Portland Public Parks this year! Henry IV, Part 2 and Measure for Measure are the new plays on the roster. The season ends on the last weekend in August with the Gentlemen’s Show (all fellas!) of Romeo & Juliet, GentleThem’s Show (non binary & trans actors!) of Comedie of Errors, and the extremely popular Gentlewomen’s Show (sisters are doing it for themselves!) of Loves Labours Lost.

About Original Practice Shakespeare Festival:
OPSFest brings no-cost Shakespeare to parks all over the Portland Metro area. The company uses the original practice techniques of Elizabethan England: limited rehearsal, scrolls in hand, audience interaction, and an onstage prompter. Gender fluid casting is our jam!
