Background


Olivier Award Winner George Maguire (Sunny Afternoon, Another Night Before Christmas and Thrill Me: The Leopold & Loeb Story) makes his Shakespearean Debut in a new adaptation of Twelfth Night.


This production reunites our Artistic Director - Guy Retallack with Producer Rob Harris whom together have presented the last five Christmas shows at the Bridge House Theatre.


Synopsis


Twelfth Night, often described as one of Shakespeare's greatest comedies and revolves around Sebastian and his twin sister, Viola - each of whom, when separated after a shipwreck - believes the other to be dead.


Cast ashore in a strange land of Illyria, Viola protects herself by adopting a male disguise - a ruse that leads to hilarious confusion when she enters the service of the lovesick Duke Orsino, acting as go-between in his hopeless suit to the Countess Olivia.


The play features some of Shakespeare's greatest comic creations including Sir Toby Belch and Feste.


Twelfth Night is a masterpiece of unrequited love, gender reversal and mistaken identity and this production is not to be missed.
