Poor Malvolio. Driven mad by his love for Olivia and his treatment at the hands of Sir Toby Belch and Andrew Aguecheek, he vowed that he'd "be revenged on the whole pack of you..."
Now years have passed and strange things are happening in Illyria - beautiful music deep in the forest, rumours of rivers flowing with gold, sightings of a king gone mad and ruling a land of nonsense. Could these things be related? All will be explained, with a fair few songs and a deal of good humour, in Glyn Maxwell's darkly comic escapade.Performers Jonathan Glew (The Captain an adventurer), Chris Lindon (Otto a ferryman), Tom Radford (Orsino the Duke of Illyria), Sarah Lambie (Cesaria his boy/a girl), Victoria Gee (Mary Belch a dissapointed wife), Haseeb Malik (Adrian an assassin), Krupa Pattani (Miralda a girl lost in the woods), Mark Rose (Jago a traveller), Ellen O'Grady (Paloma a singer), Matthew Rixon (Malvolio), Lorna Beckett (Olivia), Chris Vincent (Harbourmaster/Millionaire), Jack Lord (Gentleman), Scott Arthur (Lady).
