Indecorous Theatre Presents: Twelfth Night

Help Indecorous Theatre Productions fund their 2021 Production of Twelfth Night!

The Concept
Twelfth Night has long been a play associated with breaking down gender and sexuality barriers, but what if we took that one step further? Our production will explore, explicitly and in depth, the beautiful and exciting journey’s of all of the characters in this heartwarming and raucously funny play, to discover who they really are, what they really want, and break the shackles of expectation for their gender and sexuality that society has held them in for too long.

With a nonbinary Viola played by a nonbinary actor, as well as a primarily LGBTQIA+ cast and creative team, this production strives to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community and all the diversity it contains in a play that they have been barred from for too long. This outdoor Twelfth Night will be filled with laughter, love, music, and stunningly gorgeous language. Watch the video above to hear from the incredible actors playing Viola, Olivia, Orsino, and Sebastian about what makes this production different!

The Budget
All the money donated to this GOFUNDME will go directly towards paying the actors, crew members, and other artists involved, as well as buying costumes, props, set pieces, and a rehearsal and performance space. Any additional money we raise will be added towards paying our cast and crew.

Who We Are
To be Indecorous is to behave outside of good taste and propriety, to conflict with accepted standards and conduct. It is not only existing outside of these social constructs and expectations but understanding the rules you are flouting and why it’s important to move outside them. This is what inspires us.

Indecorous Theatre Productions roots itself in “Classical Theatre”, an art form that, in the modern era, has been claimed by a social elite, reserved for those blessed with enough culture or education or class. This, in our opinion, is bullshit. Sure Elizabeth loved her some Billy Shakespeare, but the bread on his table was bought by the masses who paid to stand in the dirt, laugh at some dick jokes and cry about love and betrayal.

At Indecorous Theatre Productions our mission is to take away the gated community feel from these Classics and make them accessible and available to the people for which they were written. These stories are for everyone and for today. They still resonate and grow and change. Using the beauty of these texts that have beaten time we want to tell new stories with new bodies and open up the conversation. Because at the end of the day, this work, these words, and art is about real people and all the diversity and change and indecorous energy real people create.
