Tamsin Greig is Malvolia in a new twist on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity.
Director: Simon Godwin
STARRING: Tamsin Greig, Daniel Rigby, Tamara Lawrence, Doon Mackichan, Daniel Ezra
A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love.
The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia’s upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness. ‘Twelfth Night’ shows that where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.
