Stratford-upon-Avon, United Kingdom
Following on from the success of 'The Taming of the Shrew', Critically acclaimed MadCap Theatre Productions return to Mary Arden's Farm with 'Twelfth Night'.
Join us for an open-air performance in the grounds- where music, dance, physical theatre and the Bard's immortal words bring one of the nations best-loved comedies to life.
What would you do if you found yourself washed up on the shores of Illyria?
Obviously, dress up as a boy and serve one of the most dashing Dukes in the land! Now, what if she falls in love with that Duke, but he is besotted with someone else- and that 'someone else' is besotted with the cross-dressing servant because she doesn't know who they really are?! Meanwhile the servant's twin has found himself in Illyria utterly confusing everyone, and a group of ill-mannered servants and a couple of drunk lords make things much, much worse...
This seemingly confusing plot is made understandable and enjoyable with MadCaps way of staging fun, fast-past and entertaining Shakespeare with a lot of ‘Madcap’ flair! Combining music, dance, stage combat and physical theatre with the original script join us for an evening of Shakespeare that is not to be missed!
