TWELFTH NIGHT

star ratingstar ratingstar ratingstar ratingstar rating

I can't remember being so ridiculously happy for the entirety of a Shakespeare performance since - let me think - August 2002.

Ben Brantley, The New York Times

In the household of Olivia (Mark Rylance), two campaigns are being quietly waged - one by the lovesick lord Orsino against the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the high-handedness of her steward, the pompous Malvolio (Stephen Fry).

When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet chain of events follows. Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with some of the subtlest poetry and most exquisite songs Shakespeare ever wrote. A revival of the Globe's award-winning Twelfth Night of 2002 with an all-male Original Practices production, exploring clothing, music, dance and settings possible in around 1601.

Twelfth Night is presented as a double bill of Shakespearean classics alongside Richard III, with both plays being presented at the Belasco on a rotating schedule.
