Twelfth Night

By William Shakespeare


Winner of Minack Trophy for ‘Best Production 2012’

Welcome to Illyria – a ‘wonderous strange’ island, where the festive season is finally drawing to a close, and the hangover is starting to set in. 


When Viola is shipwrecked on the shore believing her twin brother Sebastian to be drowned, she decides to disguise herself as a boy and enter the service of the love-sick Duke, Orsino. Here she encounters a host of weird and wonderful characters, hell bent on getting what they want.
