Synopsis


Bohemian, outlandish, isolated: Illyria is a land where everyone has lost something in a world reeling in the wake of war.


Viola is washed ashore.


In a bid to survive this mysterious ethereal land, she disguises herself as Cesario to serve the solitary Duke Orsino.


What follows is a tale of mistaken identities, seduction and transformation, leading to a complex love triangle and the near destruction of all propriety!


The Watermill, renowned for its bold, progressive and collaborative approach to Shakespeare, re-imagines Twelfth Night in the hedonistic 1920s, where prohibition is rife.


Fused with innovative staging and actor musicianship, the radical spirit of Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald collides with the contemporary influence of Postmodern Jukebox.


Following a hugely successful UK and international tour and fuelled by energetic jazz music, the ensemble reunite to create a dizzying and beautiful version of Shakespeare's perfect play.
