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 unrequited love.

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.)
