Thirteenth Night, or Malvolio's Revenge

Synopsis:
Puritan Malvolio from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, or What You Will, makes good on his promise to take revenge on "the whole pack of them," from the aristocratic Lady Oblivia Lovecock to her former Clown, now turned lawyer, Fester; from Sir Toby Fartte and his wife Ave Mariah and their foolish friend, Sir Andrew Dribbledick, to whoever else gets in his way, whether it be the boy-dressing Viola or her overeating husband, the Duke Porcino. No one is safe, including Malvolio's own fiancee, Molly Brightheart, and his "spy," the servant John B. Simpleton. It is a problem play that blows the lid off the striking perversities in the original play and exposes Shakespeare's comedies for the unwholesome farces that they are!
