Join us for an unforgettable experience with Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre on Tour, who are making a very welcome return visit to Doddington Hall. Enjoy open air theatre on the Croquet Lawn with an Elizabethan style booth stage – inspired by paintings and etchings from Shakespeare’s time, when touring was prevalent.
In the household of the Countess Olivia, two campaigns are being quietly waged – one by the lovesick Duke Orsino against the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the high-handedness of her steward, the pompous Malvolio. When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet chain of events follows.
Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with some of the subtlest poetry and most exquisite songs Shakespeare ever wrote.
Brendan O’Hea will direct a tour of eight actors with The Merchant of Venice, Twelfth Night and The Taming of the Shrew. The three plays will open at the Globe before setting out on a national and international tour including 3 special performances at Doddington.
