Overview
-

Viola survives a shipwreck, but she thinks her twin brother Sebastian has died. Alone in a strange country where it isn’t safe to be a single girl, Viola disguises herself as a boy called Cesario and finds work as a servant. But dressing in boy’s clothes doesn’t stop Viola falling in love with a man – who is in love with someone else. Will she ever manage to win his love for herself? And who is this other young man that appears, looking so like Cesario? What confusion will result from his arrival? Perhaps Viola’s brother didn’t drown after all …

About The Author
-

William Shakespeare (c. 26 April 1564 – 23 April 1616) was an English playwright, renowned by many as the world's greatest writer in the English Language. Among his plays are "Romeo and Juliet", "Hamlet", "Macbeth" to name but a few.

CHARLY CHEUNG was born and grew up in Singapore, and studied illustration at London University of the Arts at St Martins College. The Real Reads Shakespeare series is her first major commission.

HELEN STREET grew up in Yorkshire in the north of England, and while living in York became involved in theatre and education, regularly working with children on productions of Shakespeare’s best-known plays. She now divides her time between England and France, where she is renovating a semi-derelict farmhouse.
