Regent's Park Open Air Theatre
(10 mins) Exit onto Marylebone Road and turn left. Past Madame Tussauds turn left into York Gate and follow York Bridge to the end. Pass through the large gates into the park and walk straight until you reach the theatre on your left.
During the 2013 season at the Open Air Theatre, Regent’s Park, audiences could pick up theatre tickets and witness The Winter’s Tale Re-imagined and now the team that brought that production to the stage returns to provide the same treatment to Twelfth Night in 2014.
As a result this wonderful production will be the perfect way to introduce younger audiences to Shakespeare’s classic text. Suitable for anyone above the age of six, Twelfth Night Re-imagined will see the talented cast present the text as intended, though there will other elements thrown in such as visual jokes and some improvisation to make this a version of Twelfth Night like no other.
The story is a classic Shakespearean one as it involves mistaken identity. Viola and Sebastian are shipwrecked and with the latter feared dead Viola must make it on her own in a man’s world. She disguises herself as a boy called Cesario and then begins to work for the Duke of Orsino, leading to confusion and a complex love triangle. Along the way, the show will feature music and comedy, plus audience participation, to ensure a good time for all.
Shakespeare’s play first appeared on the stage in the early 17th century and was later published in the First Folio of 1623. As a result it stands alongside his most well known works and is a favourite of many around the world, continuing to find new audiences whenever it is staged.
Twelfth Night Re-imagined appears at the Open Air Theatre as part of a season that also includes To Kill A Mockingbird, All My Sons, Porgy And Bess and Hobson’s Choice. It runs from Saturday 21st June 2014.
