Twelfth Night

A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land.

So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love. The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia's upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness.

Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.

    An ingenious funny spirited take on the play which too often sacrificed the subtleties of the original for largely fabricated laughs. A friend who was seeing it for the second time told us that the actors had become far too self indulgentl in their quest for laughs

    Camp, slap stick comedy without the subtleties in the Shakespeare play. Somehow this type of farsical comedy, out of context, in a modern day setting ,for me doesn't work. Set was brilliant. Tamsin Greig as Malvolia was excellent- stole the show.

    Will stand out in my memory of great theatre productions for ever. Up there with Jonathan Miller. And that's saying something. Surprisingly moving as well as funny. Well worth the money for the tickets.
