This exquisite comedy is a timeless masterpiece, bursting at the seams with passion and music. Yet it starts with a twin sister and brother shipwrecked, grief-stricken, both believing the other to be drowned. Shakespeare’s lyrical fantasy slams poetry into melancholia, laced with drunkenness and misrule in bucket loads. Identity confusion abounds in a whirligig of capricious farce as everything spins out of control towards a sense of harmony.
Simon Phillips (Macbeth) again brings one of Shakespeare’s most celebrated works to life at MTC for this highly anticipated production, featuring music by Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall (Muriel’s Wedding The Musical).
