In the cold winter of 1602, the century seemed to be refusing to start. The old Queen was dying but still not dead, and despite dozens of dalliances with the men of her court she had produced no heir. Religious civil war and foreign invasion loomed. It was a dark winter. In Stratford-upon-Avon, William Shakespeare's son, Hamnet, had died, leaving a twin sister bereft. In January, the Lord Chamberlain's men performed a new piece, Twelfth Night...

This is a play shadowed from the outset by death and decay, overseen by decadent, self-indulgent monarchs in a land where the midwinter Festival of Misrule does not end. A sister watches her twin brother drown.

The Movement's latest production restores TWELFTH NIGHT to its wintry beginnings and to its original power: the story of dawn breaking, of the days lengthening and of a family's love overcoming death. Endearingly funny and enduringly popular, book early to avoid disappointment.
