If music be the food of love, play on, Give me excess of it; that surfeiting, The appetite may sicken, and so die

Why See Twelfth Night?

PlaysShakespeare

Journeys end in lovers meeting

From tropical shipwrecks to yellow stockings, Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare's battiest and most memorable comedies and a season at the Globe is rarely complete without an outing. A perfect introduction to The Bard for newcomers, it contains some of his classic devices, including cross-dressing, confused lovers, zany servants and merry song leading to a highly pleasing finale. Presented by the Globe's Touring Ensemble, enjoy this modest 17th Century style production that plays in rep with Pericles and The Comedy of Errors.

What you will, the story of Twelfth Night

This story of love and loss takes place on the island of Illyria, where our heroine Viola is desperate to find her twin brother Sebastian following a deadly shipwreck. Disguising herself as a man named Cesario, Viola enters the service of Duke Orsino. Orsino is in love with the disinterested Olivia, and his plan for "Cesario" to deliver his message of love to her backfires when Olivia falls instead for the messenger. Meanwhile, others, including the loutish Sir Toby Belch and his cast of hilarious acolytes, seek to exact their revenge on the stuffy servant Malvolio, by convincing him that he, in fact, is the object of Olivia's desire.
