Welcome to Illyria, where it’s Mardi Gras every day, and the now-ramshackle town has been overrun by the Countess’s vagabonds and fools.

EXCLUSIVE PRICES. Seats from £15
Shakespeare’s comedy of mistaken identity, music and the madness of love, Twelfth Night, finds new life this summer in the Globe Theatre.
Illyria is a society in limbo, held captive by loss. Until a sea-drenched stranger arrives and unexpectedly unleashes the chaotic and transformative power of love. Wild, surprising, fierce and funny, this fiery new production is infused with the mesmeric nostalgia and soulful music of the world of Americana.
If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction.
– Act III, Scene 4
