This is an Open Air production

If music be the food of love, play on.

Shakespeare's classic comedy

One of William Shakespeare's finest and best loved comedies set in a 1980s' ‘New Romantic’ style, Twelfth Night's classic love triangle will both enchant and amuse you. It centres on the twins, Viola and Sebastian, who are separated in a shipwreck. Viola, disguised as Cesario, falls in love with Duke Orsino, who in turn is in love with the Countess Olivia. Upon meeting Viola, Countess Olivia falls in love with her, thinking she is a man. Clear so far? With a cornucopia of cross dressing, mistaken identity, musical interludes and riotous subplots, Twelfth Night is guaranteed to tickle your funny bone. Fear not for, in the end, love conquers all.

Maskers Theatre Comany are putting on this beautiful event in the stunning outdoor splendour of Townhill Park House at The Gregg School in Southampton.
