English Touring Theatre and the award-winning Sheffield Theatres have joined forces to present an exhilarating production of Shakespeare’s much-loved comedy Twelfth Night, currently wowing audiences and critics alike.
Disguise and deception, unrequited love and confusion set the scene for Shakespeare’s touching comedy of mischief, madness and infatuation. Fusing vivid storytelling, a highly visual style and elegant staging with an air of faded grandeur, Twelfth Night is set in the period between the two World Wars, and features some of Shakespeare’s best-loved characters including Malvolio, Viola, Sir Toby Belch and Orsino.
‘Jonathan Munby’s gorgeous rendering of Shakespeare’s melancholy comedy is a piercing and delicately judged blend of rapture and rue. Exquisite.’
English Touring Theatre is widely regarded as England’s national theatre of touring, with a reputation for staging an eclectic mix of new and classic work for audiences throughout the UK and overseas that is at once thrilling and popular – and, above all, entertaining.
