William Shakespeare's 


Summer 2018 (Ended)

Love, hysteria, and deception reign in this Victorian reimagining of Shakespeare’s classic.


Cesario is in love with Orsino, who’s in love with Olivia, who’s in love with Cesario, who’s really Viola in disguise. There’s cross-dressing, crossed lines, and cross servants. The situation’s complicated, and that’s before Viola’s missing twin turns up! Societal masks, hidden identity, unrequited love, and the perils of Victorian psychiatry form an intricate web of heartbreak and despair. Can love prevail against the mores of Victorian society? Make of it what you will.


Some Kind of Theatre, creators of the Shakespeare on the Sofa project, are proud to present this timeless tale of love and confusion.

This show was available for Shakespeare On The Sofa performances.  It was performed 13th-26th August at the Edinburgh Fringe at Paradise Green's The Vault (11 Merchant Street, EH1 2 QD).  Twelfth Night previewed at Annexe Art's Formation Festival at Assembly Roxy on July 7th-9th.
