Our Review 4 / 5

Simon Godwin directs this joyous new production of Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare, opening in the Olivier Theatre on 22 February. Tamsin Greig will star as a transformed Malvolia.

A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love. The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia’s uptight housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness. Where music is the food of love and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.
