Twelfth Night - Brockley Jack Studio Theatre

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

YARD Players are presenting Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night at the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre from Tuesday, January 14 to Saturday, February 1, 2020.

Twelfth Night: a time of mischief, trickery and debauchery.

When Viola washes up on the shores of Illyria, she witnesses the festivities first hand and is drawn into the schemes of the love-struck Duke Orsino, and subjected to the antics of the anarchic Toby Belch. At first it’s all fun and games, but then things take a more serious turn.

Twelfth Night exposes a world of love triangles, plotting drunkards and false identities. In the northern town of Illyria anything goes, especially on Twelfth Night.

Following their sell-out production of King Lear, Yard Players are presenting this vibrant and modern take on one of Shakespeare’s most renowned comedies, in a production full of comic twists and dark turns.

Yard Players are an emerging company from south east London, bringing accessible, intelligent and fast-paced productions of classical texts to new audiences.

The cast includes Daniel Chrisostomou, Heloise Spring, Candice Price, James Viller, Duncan Drury, Pete Picton and Jess Kinsey.

Twelfth Night is directed by James Eley and has lighting design by Paul Lennox. Assistant director is Maya Shimmin.

Twelfth Night is suitable for ages 14+.

Tickets: £16, £13 concessions. To book, call the box office on 0333 666 3366 (£1.50 fee for phone bookings only) or visit brockleyjack.co.uk/.

Time: 7.30pm.

Also at the Jack Studio Theatre: the UK premiere of e-baby (until November 30) and Derek Webb’s adaptation of HG Wells’ The Invisible Man (December 11, 2019 to January 4, 2020).
