Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare – Oak Hill Park

Flyer for performance of Twelfth Night on 20th August at Oak Hill Park in East Barnet

This show by Illyria on 20th August is part of the Theatre in the Park season of open-air theatre.

Illyria’s Shakespeare productions are always fun and accessible. Following a shipwreck, Viola is washed-up in Illyria, where her only chance for survival is to make use of her quick wit and fine singing voice, disguising herself as a man and applying to work in the court of Duke Orsino.

The lovesick Orsino sends “him” to lady Olivia to woo her on his behalf, but Viola’s efforts are so successful that Olivia falls for Viola rather than Orsino.

Meanwhile Olivia’s carousing uncle Sir Toby Belch crosses swords with her steward Malvolio and devises a wicked plan to humiliate him. It could all end in tears – even if most of them are of laughter.

Illyria presents an evening of yearning romance, music and sheer joy – all performed on a stage inspired by those of the Elizabethan touring troupes.
