Genre: Jacobean tragedy
‘I am all the daughters of my father’s house, And all the brothers too.’
Twelfth Night is a tale of unrequited love – hilarious and heartbreaking. Twins are separated in a shipwreck, and forced to fend for themselves in a strange land. The first twin, Viola, falls in love with Orsino, who dotes on OIivia, who falls for Viola but is idolised by Malvolio.
Enter Sebastian, who is the spitting image of his twin sister... Christopher Luscombe, director of the ‘glorious’ (Daily Telegraph) Love’s Labour’s Lost and Much Ado About Nothing (2014 & 2016), returns to tackle Shakespeare’s greatest comedy, a brilliantly bittersweet account of ‘the whirligig of time’.
