Shakespeare's TWELFTH NIGHT
Thursday, April 6 at 2 pm (Live) | Members $20 | Public $25
Tamsin Greig is Malvolia in a new twist on William Shakespeare’s classic comedy
of mistaken identity. 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
Simon Godwin directs this joyous new production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth
Night with Tamsin Greig as a transformed Malvolia. Featuring an ensemble cast
that includes Daniel Rigby, Tamara Lawrence, Doon Mackichan and Daniel Ezra.
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. (210 min.)
'Bright, inventive, boundlessly funny'
'Tamsin Greig is brilliant.'
