Following the huge success of I, Caliban, I, Peaseblossom and I, Banquo, I, Malvolio re-imagines Twelfth Night from the point of view of Shakespeare’s pent-up steward. I, Malvolio is a hilarious and often unsettling rant from a man ‘notoriously wronged’.
A story of lost dignity, prudery, practical jokes and bullying, this one-man act of storytelling alchemy draws us deep into the madness of Shakespeare’s classic comedy.
‘Look at you. Sitting there with your bellies full of pop and pickled herring. Laughing at me. Go on. Laugh at the funny man. Laugh. Make the funny man cry.’
Performance of I, Malvolio at the Brighton Pavilion Studio on March 13, 2015.
