Twelfth Night

April 23, 2019

The Rose Playhouse

By William Shakespeare | Directed by Adam Nichols

Shakespeare meets Postmodern Jukebox in a musical version of one of his best loved comedies, set on a cruise liner at the height of the roaring twenties.
On the SS Illyria two campaigns are being quietly waged – one by the lovesick Duke Orsino against the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the highhandedness of her steward, the pompous Malvolio.
When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a hilarious and bittersweet chain of events follows.
Featuring a live jazz band performing music by Rihanna, Britney Spears, Radiohead, and many more…
