NT Live’s recorded screening brings William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night to the stage. Tamsin Greig is Malvolia in a new twist on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity. A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love.

The Oklahoma Literary Arts Festival offers, for high school students and teachers, a series of workshops provided by members of the ECU English faculty and guest artists from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., preceded by a screening of the National Theatre Live adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Twelfth Night. A pizza lunch will be offered between the screening of The Twelfth Night and the workshops. 

The 22nd Annual Oklahoma Literary Arts Festival is hosted by the East Central University Department of English and Languages and ECU Screens, a part of the National Theatre Live ECU Screens Series

Parking: Please drop students off at 13th and Center Streets in front of Bill S. Cole University Center.
