The National Theatre’s TWELFTH NIGHT

The National Theatre’s acclaimed production of Shakespeare’s TWELFTH NIGHT is free to watch now until next Thursday 30th April at 7pm.

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.

Simon Godwin (Man and SupermanThe Beaux’ Stratagem) directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig as a transformed Malvolia.

Although this production is free to watch, please strongly consider making a donation to the National Theatre – or text NTATHOME 10 to 70085 to donate £10 – to enable it to keep its doors open after this crisis has passed.
