★★★★”Tamsin Greig is brilliant in a show full of fun” The Guardian
★★★★’ Masses of fun, a delicious crowd pleaser ‘ Time Out
★★★★★ ‘Fabulously funny, dazzling and finely tuned’ Radio Times
★★★★ ‘The casting of Tamsin Greig as Malvolia is bound to be the big talking point of this gender-fluid production. Greig is such an instinctive comic actor, it pays off richly. Simon Godwin’s staging is also bright, inventive and boundlessly funny: all I missed was the element of reflective melancholy that makes this, for many of us, the most perfect comedy ever written’ The Guardian
Tamsin Greig is Malvolia in a new twist on 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.
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.
Simon Godwin (NT Live: Man and Superman, NT Live: The Beaux’ Stratagem) directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig (Friday Night Dinner, Black Books, Episodes) as a transformed Malvolia. an ensemble cast that includes Daniel Rigby (Flowers, Jericho), Tamara Lawrence (Undercover), Doon Mackichan (Smack the Pony) and Daniel Ezra (The Missing, Undercover).
