Presented by Dr. Jeanette Goddard. The Deceived is an Italian comedy first published in 1532. Assumed to be the source play for Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, the play involves mistaken identities, family members that were thought to be dead, and cross-dressing nuns. In a playful way, this comedy deals with the serious topics of pursuing what you want, of using deceit to overcome obstacles, and, ultimately, what community should look like.
