Twelfth Night and Directing Kim Smith 1. I think the most important theme in this play is love, I believe Shakespeare is showing us all different forms of love, from love for a wife, love for a friend, a brother and a potential new husband/wife. I think he’s saying love can drive us crazy or make us do crazy things but he’s showing it in a funny way. I think in today’s world the audience will still think the theme is love but times have changed so we really wouldn’t relate to it as well. 2.

Orsino-Brad Pitt- I picture him handsome and I think Brad has a power about him that I could see in the dukes role; he can be commanding and strong. 4. Sir Toby-Billy Burke- I picture Sir Toby middle aged but handsome, I think Billy would bring a more rugged attitude to the character. 5. Malvolio-Timothy Spall-I picture him dim witted, not attractive. I think Timothy could play this part well and bring his comedic talents, which would really enhance the character....
