Co-Op Theatre East announces Twelfth Night: Wall Street, directed by COTE co-founder Casey Cleverly will be part of the 4th Annual Planet Connections Theatre Festivity. The Festivity will take place May 30th through June 24th at The Theatres at 45 Bleecker in New York City.
Set in the modern day financial sector, Twelfth Night: Wall Street highlights the current gender bias and power-play in the American work place. When the young Viola takes a job at the financial firm Orsino and Partners, she quickly finds that in order to move up the corporate ladder, she needs to dress as a man. Meanwhile her tough boss Orsino is intent on wooing the business of a major fashion client, Olivia and Co., at whatever cost. Their world turns topsy-turvy as the fashion heiress, Olivia, falls in love with the young analyst in disguise, and Olivia's pesky relatives come to Occupy Wall Street. Twelfth Night: Wall Street is a play full of camp, satire, and serious money.
