Twelfth Night

By William Shakespeare

UK, 2012, 180 min
Shakespeare's Globe
Director: Tim Carroll
Designer: Jenny Tiramani
Composer: Claire van Kampen
Cast: Stephen Fry, Mark Rylance, Roger Lloyd Pack

One of Shakespeare's best-loved comedies. Twelfth Night was 'blissfully reborn' (The Daily Telegraph) for the 2012/2013 season at the Globe Theatre, under the direction of Tim Carroll. the hilarious tale of misdirection and deception is performed here by an all-male cast, as it would have been in Shakespeare's day, with Mark Rylance playing Olivia and Roger Lloyd Pack as the hapless Sir Andrew Aguecheek. The production also marks Stephen Fry's triumphant return to the stage as the pompous Malvolio, ridiculous in his yellow stockings.
