‘In delay there lies no plenty … youth’s a stuff will not endure’.
Sun & Moon Theatre invite you to join them for Shakespeare’s most delightful yet melancholic comedy, Twelfth Night (or What You Will). Set during the First World War, those at home in Illyria try to forget the conflict, seeking distraction through frivolity, solace, and companionship. When refugee twins Viola and Sebastian are shipwrecked and separated, they shake up this grief-stricken community. With mistaken identity, folly and love, this is a vibrant open-air production enriched with live music, passion and wit.
★★★★ ‘Compassionate and intelligent … inspired’ (RemoteGoat)
★★★★ ‘Excellent’ (Exepose)
