Tamsin Greig is Malvolia in a new twist on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity.
A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Sebastian is lost but his twin sister Viola is washed ashore and steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love. The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are so overrun with passion that even Olivia's upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything is possible.
Simon Godwin directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig as a transformed Malvolia. an ensemble cast that includes Daniel Rigby, Tamara Lawrence, Doon Mackichan and Daniel Ezra.
