Last weekend was a weekend of contrasts for me-I saw the farcical comedy Noises Off in Reedley, and the very dark and serious play, The Crucible, in Visalia at the College of the Sequoias.

Twelfth Night is one of my favorite plays by William Shakespeare. It is a comedy that is believed to have been written around 1601-02 as a Twelfth Night’s entertainment for the close of the Christmas season. So it seems appropriate that it be the fall play presented by Fresno Pacific Theater.
