Since 2006, Bard in the Quad has presented innovative, quality outdoor Shakespeare productions to the OSU campus.

Bard in the Quad will return August 4-7 and 11-14 2022 with William Shakespeare's beloved romantic comedy, Twelfth Night.

"If music be the food of love, play on!"

After a tragic shipwreck washes Viola on the shores of Illyria, she disguises herself as a boy and finds work in the court of the handsome and besotted Duke Orsino who has been unsuccessfully attempting to woo the beautiful Countess, Olivia. Emotions run high as Viola (in the guise of Cesario) finds herself caught in an unlikely love triangle between Orsino and Olivia and as the unwitting pawn in a comic scheme devised by Olivia's boisterous and mischievous uncle, Sir Toby. A lost twin, music, a household of clever servants, and more suitors that Olivia can handle bring this charming world to life with Shakespeare's characteristic wit.
