Whether you’re an audience member in 2023 or back in 1602, you could be forgiven for thinking that Twelfth Night was going to be the darkest of tragedies: what could be more nightmarish than to lose your twin sibling in a furious storm at sea and to think they'd died?
In fact, a romantic comedy unfolds with a madcap farce at its heart. The broadest of broad humour (poor Malvolio tricked into absurdity) mixes with moments of unbearable pathos (listen out for Sir Anthony Aguecheek's wistful "I was adored once too".).
We don't want to give any more away, even though we're so excited to be presenting our new production of Twelfth Night that we want to tell you everything. We won't though: suffice to say it all works out in the end, in a way that only Shakespeare would carry off.
