Bristol Old Vic and Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh are delighted to announce that the first co-production between the two award-winning theatres will be Shakespeare’s hilarious and heart-breaking Twelfth Night.
Mischief and mayhem abound in Illyria after twins Viola and Sebastian are separated in a shipwreck. Believing her brother to be lost forever, Viola, disguised as a man, finds herself caught between the households of the lovelorn Duke Orsino and the grieving Countess Olivia. Servants, friends and lovers entwine in a whirlwind tale of mistaken identity, misadventure and unrequited love. Will all come good in the end?
The Lyceum’s Associate Artist, Wils Wilson (The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart) directs this heady new production of Shakespeare’s iconic play. Twelfth Night will open The Lyceum’s 2018 Season before transferring to Bristol Old Vic.
