Join us for this online lecture with Julia Lupton, New Swan Shakespeare Center co-director. Julia will welcome you to the pirates' cove and the beckoning lighthouse where our 2024 production of Twelfth Night is set. Settle back on your virtual rum barrels and learn about the pirates of Shakespeare's day, the symbolism of light in the darkness, and the true meaning of Twelfth Night. (It's not just cakes and ale.)
