The Pig Iron Theater Company is reimagining a Shakespeare classic with their spirited production of “Twelfth Night, or What You Will,” opening this week at the new, year-round home of the FringeArts festival. The show runs Dec. 4-22. Even better, we’re giving away tickets. Two winners will each get two tickets to their choice of four performances this weekend, on either Dec. 7 or 8.

The show includes Balkan-inspired music performed by members of the West Philadelphia Orchestra as Pig Iron breathes new life into the Bard’s classic script with equal measures of absurdity and heart, says Fringe:
Dueling musicians, wine-drenched debauchery, depressive noblemen, idiots and veteran jesters, religious zealots and erotic misunderstandings are mixed into a new visual and aural approach to Shakespeare, using Pig Iron’s highly physical performance style to embrace one of the Bard’s most wicked plots. Replete with practical jokes, gender confusion and mistaken identity, this much-loved production exploits Shakespeare’s wordplay with funny, unpredictable immediacy.
