Twelfth Night Castle Players 17th June 2018
Twelfth Night - Castle Players
The University of Durham’s Castle Theatre Company presents one of Shakespeare’s most loved comedies; ‘Twelfth Night’. This classic tale of love and confusion is enjoyed worldwide and is great entertainment on a sunny June afternoon. After a shipwreck, Viola is separated from her twin brother Sebastian, and disguising herself as a young boy becomes a messenger between the local duke Orsino and the wealthy heiress he loves, Olivia. As the two nobles begin to fall in love with this mysterious ‘boy’, the other members of Olivia’s household compete for her hand in marriage (and huge fortune!). Enter Sebastian, Viola’s long lost identical twin, and chaos quickly ensues... For over 30 years Castle Theatre Company has taken its annual summer Shakespeare tour around the south of England and the USA, performing classic comedies on the lawns of stately homes, gardens and abbeys across these countries. Renowned for its high-standard, Castle Theatre Company promises an afternoon of light-hearted family entertainment.'
