‘Twelfth Night’ by William Shakespeare
6.30pm (gates open 5.30pm), 15th July 2017
Bring a picnic and settle down in the Lamport gardens to enjoy a live performance in the gardens by The Rain or Shine Theatre Company.
In the fantastical Kingdom of Illyria, the peace of a grieving Countess and a heartsick Duke is disturbed by a pair of shipwrecked lovers, a lazy drunk, a vain pedant, a cowardly fool and a cunning maid.
Viola loves Orsino, who thinks he loves Olivia. Olivia thinks she loves Cesario who is really Viola, dressed as a man. Malvolio presumes himself a gentleman and the foolish Sir Andrew believes himself to be a match for the Lady Olivia.
Tricks and subterfuge lead to unforeseen consequences; but then ‘the course of true love never did run smooth’, in this, the most loved of Shakespeare’s comic plays.
Performance will be in a marquee if wet (holds 200). Please note space in the marquee cannot be guaranteed, particularly for those who purchase tickets after 7th July.
