Twelfth Night

Twelfth NightT0507736569
Or What You Will. Shakespeare comedy of mistaken identity, practical jokes and unrequited love. Rescued from a shipwreck the twins Viola and Sebastian arrive independently in Illyria, both thinking the other is drowned. Viola disguises herself as a boy and finds employment with the Duke who is in love with Olivia. Malvolio is the subject of a cruel joke played on him by Sir Toby Belch (yellow stockings cross-gartered) leading him to believe that Olivia loves him. But Olivia has fallen in love with the disguised Viola, while she is in love with the Duke (following it so far?!).

Production details

This new production transposes Illyria to the place which most closely resembles Shakespeare's London today, contemporary India. Honour codes, the rules of marriage, holy men, beliefs and the significance of festival find a fresh relevance in this recognisable and engaging world.
