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.
A carnival of mistaken identities, confused desires, drunken mischief and witty deceit make for a thrilling and compelling theatrical experience. ‘Twelfth Night’ is one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies, weaving together brilliantly crafted plot lines with romance, comedy, tragedy and music.
From the creative team that brought sell-out productions of 'Hamlet', ‘The Comedy of Errors’ and ‘West Side Story' to the Minack, Moving Stories Theatre promise a memorable experience, featuring fast-paced comedy, touching tragedy, sumptuous settings and a live jazz band!
