Event description

Description

Enriched with passion, wit and live music, this is a vibrant and intimate production of Twelfth Night (or What You Will). Enjoy this festive take on Shakespeare’s most delightful and thought-provoking comedy.

This performance will be outdoors if the weather permits otherwise it will be staged within the Great Barn. Seats are not allocated we advise arriving early and enjoying a pre curtain drink from the vintage bar or perhaps some freshly prepared street food.


‘In delay there lies no plenty … youth’s a stuff will not endure’

Christmas 1917. As the First World War wages on, those back at home in Illyria try to forget, seeking distraction through frivolity, solace, and companionship. But when refugee twins from Messaline, Viola and Sebastian, are shipwrecked and separated, they shake up this grief-stricken community. Conscious of life’s brevity, Shakespeare’s characters seize the day, resulting in mistaken identity, folly and love.
