An introduction to Shakespeare with a healthy dose of good old-fashioned nonsense for all ages. Olivia’s in love with a memory. Malvolio is in love with himself. Orsino’s in love with love. And then you have Viola, a cross-dressing girl that mixes everyone up. This play is narrated by a contemporary Feste, who helps explain what is going on throughout.
“This version is specifically adapted for the understanding of younger audiences with a mix of bold storytelling, imaginative staging and the power and beauty of the original text.” –Theatre Bristol, UK
