Shakespeare plays have a habit of coming in multiples in London: for instance, I've already seen four versions of Julius Caesar in the last six months alone, and there are two more on the immediate horizon in Bristol and at London's new Bridge Theatre imminently.

What could possibly go wrong? Olivia falls in love with the cross-dressed page while Viola falls deep and fast for Orsino. Meanwhile, mischievous servants play painful pranks at each other’s expense.
