Twelfth Night re-imagined for everyone aged six and over (2014)

William Shakespeare

Directed by Max Webster, Twelfth Night re-imagined for everyone aged six and over was created to share Shakespeare's madcap tale with younger audiences. With a small cast of seven, this classic comedy of mistaken identity was 'colourful, energetic and fun' (Teaching Drama), full of audience participation and wit. Ben Stones' vibrant set and fun costume designs made every performance feel joyful.
