I, Malvolio

Age 11+ │ Duration 70 mins

Multi-award-winning playwright and performer Tim Crouch re-imagines Twelfth Night in this, his brilliant, hilarious one-man show.

In a charged, unsettling rant, Malvolio – a man ‘notoriously wronged’ – draws us into the madness of Shakespeare's play and forces us to confront our own cruelty.  I, Malvolio is Twelfth Night told from the loser’s perspective. It’s a show for anyone who has ever been told off, called a name, or fallen in love with the wrong person.

…a downright joyous celebration of theatre.’ The Guardian * * * * *
