Twelfth Night

Directed by Alice Purcell & Ian Guy
Was performed 6th - 10th December 2016

Separated from her twin brother Sebastian in a shipwreck, Viola disguises herself as a boy, calls herself Cesario, and becomes a servant to the Duke Orsino.

Twelfth Night - Viola and Orsino Twelfth Night - Sir Toby Belch and Singers

He sends her to woo the Countess Olivia on his behalf, but the Countess falls in love with Cesario.

Twelfth Night - Malvolio

Meanwhile Olivia’s uncle, Sir Toby Belch, gets drunk with his friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek and they play a trick on Malvolio, Olivia’s steward.

Eventually Sebastian turns up and after a bit of confusion, chaos and comedy all is restored.

Twelfth Night - Maria, Olivia and Malvolio Twelfth Night - Sir Andrew Agucheek, Maria, Sir Toby Belch, Feste, and Fabiano

Set against a 1920’s gangster background and pulsating with the sounds of the era we, once again, put our very own slant on the Bard.
