About Twelfth Night
Make a date with Shakespeare’s whirlwind comedy of mistaken identity, featuring Tamsin Greig as a transformed Malvolia.
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.
Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.
Simon Godwin (Man and Superman, The Beaux’s Stratagem, Hansard) directs this joyous production, captured on-stage by National Theatre Live.
