SHAKESPEARE’S lyrical Twelfth Night returns to The Dukes in Lancaster with Filter Theatre’s explosive take on this magical production.

Performed under house lights with actors in casual costumes, the theatrical experience is more akin to a rock concert than classic theatre, creating a live chemistry between actor, audience and play.

With Olivia’s melancholic, puritanical household clashes head on with Sir Toby’s insatiable appetite for drunken debauchery. Orsino’s relentless pursuit of Olivia and Malvolio’s extraordinary transformation typify the madness of love in Illyria: land of make-believe and illusion.

This story of romance, satire and mistaken identity is crafted into one of the most exciting and accessible Shakespeare productions of recent years. Experience the madness of love in this heady world where riotous gig meets Shakespeare.

The show played to sell out audiences last time it came to Lancaster, so book early to avoid missing out.

n Twelfth Night, The Dukes Lancaster, February 11-15. Box office: 01524 598500
