‘Love sought is good, but giv’n unsought is better’
A play about love, sex, hopes and dreams.
Our first production of Twelfth Night at the Abbey Theatre in over 30 years is a provocative and modern look at Shakespeare’s most renowned comedy.
Orsino loves Olivia. Olivia doesn’t love him. She loves Cesario who’s actually Viola in disguise. And then there’s Malvolio…where will his infatuation lead him? Love is complicated but can we choose who we fall for?
This fresh retelling of Twelfth Night is packed with original music and Shakespeare’s extraordinary language.
Director Wayne Jordan (Alice in Funderland, The Plough and the Stars) joins some of Ireland’s most exciting theatre artists of the moment to present this new production on the Abbey stage.
Please note – This production may contain strobe lighting.
