Twelfth Night Overview
It’s the 12th day of Christmas, and in Olivia’s country house the festivities are still in full swing. The booze flows and the music jumps – in spite of clean-living yoga man Malvolio’s attempts to quell the party. Viola is a lonely activist on the run from the authorities; a prankster with a sassy curiosity. Amongst the heaping bin bags of a prolonged festive revelry, with seasoned pisshead Toby belch at the helm, she finds the perfect place to hide. A very 2016 take on this classic story of love, drink, mistaken identity and a prank gone way too far.
