★★★★ ‘Adrian Edmondson is outstanding as Malvolio…he brings the house down’ what’s on Stage
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…
★★★★ ‘The japes and revels are an unending delight; John Hodgkinson is a deliciously mercurial Sir Toby and Michael Cochrane’s Sir Andrew is cherishable’ Evening Standard
★★★★ ‘Kara Tointon’s poised, elegant Olivia…Dinita Gohil is a bright-eyed figure who delivers the famous “willow cabin” speech with a level of rapture I have not heard in ages’ The Guardian
Christopher Luscombe, , returns to tackle Shakespeare’s greatest comedy, a brilliantly bittersweet account of “the whirligig of time”, with Adrian Edmondson (Bottom, The Young Ones) in the role of Malvolio and Kara Tointon (ITV’s Mr Selfridge and Sound of Music Live!) in the role of Olivia.
★★★★ ‘An incredibly handsome production’ The Stage
‘Better a witty fool than a foolish wit’
