Don’t miss Bristol Old Vic Theatre School’s inventive take on the Bard this spring, where deception and desire wreak playful havoc at Malcolm X Community Centre.

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Geoffrey Brumlik
Designed by Holly Coulson and Sophie Land

Love and disguise intertwine for comedic chaos in Twelfth Night. With graceful period design, director Geoffrey Brumlik transports Shakespeare’s famous romantic comedy to 1600s Europe – where affairs of the heart prove potent…but perilous.

When shipwrecked Viola assumes the guise of a man in the court of lovelorn Duke Orsino, delightful deception runs amok. The Countess Olivia’s devoted pursuit of the disguised Viola soon entangles all our players in a maze of mistaken identities and passion. Experience Bristol Old Vic Theatre School’s take on this classic and beloved farce about the masks we wear for unrequited love.
