Shakespeare’s Globe’s award-winning all-male Twelfth Night stars Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry.
In the household of Olivia, two campaigns are being quietly waged - one by the lovesick Lord 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.
Olivier Award-winner Rylance reprises the role of Olivia that won him huge acclaim in the Globe's 2002 production of Twelfth Night. Rylance’s Jerusalem co-star Johnny Flynn joins him to play Viola, while comedian, presenter and writer Fry plays figure of fun Malvolio.
