‘If music be the food of love…’ – Play’s on!
Our all-female production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night is on now until Saturday 21 May.
A shipwrecked girl, Viola, dresses as a boy called Cesario, then falls in love with Orsino, her employer. Orsino then asks Cesario to deliver love letters to Olivia, who in turn falls head over heels for the messenger.
The arrival of Viola’s lost twin brother tangles the plot still further, while below stairs, shenanigans involve a drunken uncle, a hapless lover and a puritanical steward…
The setting for the play is inspired by the infamous 1970 Isle of Wight Festival and features snippets of songs from the era. The production is by turns nostalgic, comic, sad and elegant, and by all accounts is not to be missed.
