Twelfth Night – Creaction with The Herald Players
December 5 - December 8£12.50 – £15
Originally performed by men, with boys playing girls playing boys, the all~female cast supplies a new twist with girls playing playing men falling in love with men played by women.
Such confusion is never far from the surface in the text. Viola shrugs it off as ‘too hard a knot to untie’ and goes on her merry way. Alongside the famous love triangle that has to be sorted out with a dash of twins, the comic sub~plot involving Sir Toby Belch’s revenge on the pompous Malvollio provides much of the comedy.
Playing in the round, the company promises to provide the audience with an intimate and boisterously engaging experience.
Performances from Wednesday 5th December to Saturday 8th December, 7.30 – 9.30pm
with a matinee performance at 2.30pm on Saturday 8th December.
