Last Updated . Click "Updates" above to see the latest.

This project is based off of the Shakespeare play Twelfth Night, or What You Will. It was performed on stage in Chicago in the summer of this year (2016), and this is a recreation of the stage. The play is about a young woman named Viola who has been shipwrecked on the shores of the country Illyria, and decides to serve the duke of the country, Orsino, because she fell in love with him. She dresses up as a boy named Cesario and sends messages of love from Orsino to the countess Olivia, which he is in love with. Olivia then falls for Viola thinking she is a boy. Meanwhile, Viola's brother Sebastian, who was separated from Viola during the shipwreck, is on the streets with his new friend Antonio. The project includes the stage, two tilted pillars with a doorway, a window on top, two sails, two tilted masts, one piano, a balcony, three boxes, three bags, a false love letter, red flowers, two ladders, a piano seat, a moon prop, ten stage lights and a purse. The Minifigures include Maria, Sir Toby Belch, Viola with extra hat, Orsino, Olivia, Sir Andrew, Sebastian, Antonio, Feste with extra hair piece, Malvolio with extra legs representing yellow stockings and William Shakespeare.

This set would be good because it is a Shakespeare play and could be educational to younger builders. It is also good because it recreates a play and there aren't very many LEGO sets of plays. The figures would also be exclusive to this set, and exclusive Minifigures are always great. You can also use the things you get in this for other uses, such as using the piano for a LEGO house you might be building, or use the bags and crates for storage of LEGO accessories. The price of this would be around $200-$220, and the piece count is 1,231 bricks.

Thank you for your time in looking at this project. Please support and follow, I will be grateful. Thanks again and goodbye!
