The Sparrow’s Dive Theater Presents 12th Night

Recently, I re-read my favorite Shakespeare play, “The Twelfth Night, or What You Will”. It’s set in Illyria (modern-day Albania) but all the characters have distinctly English mannerisms. One possible explanation: Shakespeare invented Survivor centuries before it aired on TV. He somehow convinced the king of Illyria to let him deposit all these Englishmen into his country and ignore them while the made a mess of their lives to the delight of audiences everywhere.
