Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night

4.8 (32) · Contemporary, Shakespeare

Simon Godwin (Man and Superman, The Beaux' Stratagem) directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig 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 upright 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.

Critic reviews

Fabulously funny, dazzling and finely tuned

Radio Times

Tamsin Greig is brilliant

Evening Standard

A knock out. Simon Godwin has pulled off a wowser. Tamsin Greig gives one of the performances of the year.

The Times

Bright, inventive and boundlessly funny. Soutra Gilmour has created a massively ingenious set


This star-studded, discreetly woke 'Twelfth Night' is masses of fun
