This week for the next in our 201 series, we go narrow and deep into some unanswered (perhaps unanswerable?) questions lingering around Twelfth Night. The Rhetorical Redux is about the use of accumulatio in the play; Jess ponders pants roles and hiding in plain sight; Aubrey asks WTF the title has to do with the play at all. We also provide a list of Twelfth Night productions* on their way to you this year (that is, if you live in the US, UK, or Canada).
