About Twelfth Night

Olivier Award-winner Tamsin Greig returns to the National Theatre in a new production of Twelfth Night. Acclaimed director Simon Godwin (Man and Superman, Strange Interlude) brings Shakespeare’s comedy to the Olivier Theatre in a production he hopes will show the Bard’s work from a new angle.

Who's in it?

Starring Tamsin Greig as Malvolia. Tamsin has made appearances in television, film radio and theatre starring in ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ and, most recently, BBC sitcom ‘Episodes’ alongside Stephen Mangan and Matt LeBlanc. She is joined by Bafta Award-winner Daniel Rigby (Eric and Ernie)

What's the story?

From the classic Shakespeare comedy first published in 1623, Twelfth Night is the story of twins Viola and Sebastian separated in a shipwreck. Viola, disguised as a boy, falls in love with Duke Orsino who is in love with Countess Olivia… who in turn falls for Viola thinking she is a man. What follows is a hilarious twisting journey of mistaken identity and unrequited love in this modern retelling.

Where music is the food of love, and nobody is what they seem, anything proves possible.
