Writer & director: Gail McGarva
Musical arrangements & direction:Penny Dunscombe

RSC LIVE: Twelfth Night | Wednesday 14 February

A live RSC screening

‘I am all the daughters of my father’s house,
And all the brothers too.’

234296_Twelfth Night production photos_ 2017_2017_Web use (1)

 

Twelfth Night is a tale of unrequited love – hilarious and heartbreaking. Two twins are separated in a shipwreck, and forced to fend for themselves in a strange land. The first twin, Viola, falls in love with Orsino, who dotes on OIivia, who falls for Viola but is idolised by Malvolio. Enter Sebastian, who is the spitting image of his twin sister…

Christopher Luscombe, Director of the ‘glorious’ (Daily Telegraph) Love’s Labour’s Lost and Much Ado About Nothing (2014 and 2016), returns to the Royal Shakespeare Company to tackle Shakespeare’s greatest comedy, a brilliantly bittersweet account of “the whirligig of time”.
