“A company blessed with wit, style and a touch of magic…Rock-and-roll Shakespeare’s a blast.”
— The Telegraph
In Filter Theatre’s Twelfth Night, created in association with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the timeless star-crossed, cross-gartered, cross-dressed love story gets a fresh, funny, free-wheeling update worthy of its alternate title: What You Will. All bets are off and all rules upended when Shakespeare’s beloved, besotted, gender-bending love triangle meets the antic spirit of Filter Theatre. The result is an evening of merry mayhem that will tickle funny bones and melt hearts. A warm, ribald, riotous antidote to the post-holiday blues. You may know the story, but you don’t know this show!
