Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Jay Stratton
Translation by Gaby Reyes
Madeline Park Shakespeare Festival, 2023
As producing Artistic Director of Madeline Park Shakespeare, we have made the decision that our second-year offering will be a bilingual version of Twelfth Night. Supported by the UTEP College of Liberal Arts, I am working with a translator to create a family-friendly adaptation of the play that moves back and forth between English and Spanish. We believe this bilingual approach will create a festival that is more inclusive and accessible to all El Paso audiences and that reflects the border culture of our city.
Listen to an in-depth interview about the process of adaptation and translation from the radio station: KTEP's State of the Arts.
Jay Stratton is currently the Producing Artistic Director of the Madeline Park Shakespeare Festival.
