Twelfth Night – The Australian Shakespeare Company

If music be the food of love… Play on!

Laughing ourselves silly with: Sir Toby Belch – the man believed to have invented partying, Sir Andrew Aguecheek – dispossessed of any intelligence he is naturally silly, Malvolio – a power hungry puritan who falls from a great moral height when pushed by Sir Toby, Maria – the housemaid who outwits Malvolio and housetrains Sir Toby, Viola – a shipwrecked girl who cross-dresses as a boy to get a job, Olivia – deeply grieving for her brother’s death, she refuses Duke Orsino’s overtures and rebounds by falling in love with the cross-dressed Viola and Orsino – the lovesick Duke pining for Olivia but seems to fancy Viola dressed as a boy and is quick to swap loves when he discovers she is really a girl.

The Australian Shakespeare Company continues its much-heralded tradition of presenting SHAKESPEARE UNDER THE STARS in the ROYAL BOTANIC GARDENS VICTORIA, MELBOURNE.
