A shipwreck, a set of twins and the most famous pair of yellow stockings in history take centre stage in Shakespeare’s sublime comedy.
Hilarious and heart-breaking, Twelfth Night follows the fortunes of Viola, who, washed up on the shores of Illyria, disguises herself as a boy to seek employment. Sent to woo the Lady Olivia by Duke Orsino, it soon becomes clear that Viola’s disguise may just be a little too good… READ THE SYNOPSIS
"The most perfect comedy ever written" The Guardian
Listen to one of the original songs we've had written for the show.
Music and lyrics by Peter Lole, featuring Emma Fenney on lead vocals with Isaac Stanmore and Alex Scott Fairley.
Featuring some of Shakespeare’s most well-known speeches and best-loved characters, (Sir Toby Belch, Andrew Aguecheek, Malvolio), this brand-new production, directed by Charlotte Conquest and designed by Neil Irish (The Two Gentlemen of Verona, Romeo & Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew), transports the eccentric world of Illyria a the sunny British seaside of the 1950s.
As the warmth of a midsummer dusk descends, expect fabulous music, elegant poetry and brilliantly staged comedy right in the heart of Guildford.
