Twelfth Night - June 2014

Duke Orsino is in love with Lady Olivia, but she's not interested. However, when she meets 'Sebastian', she changes her mind. Unfortunately for Olivia, 'Sebastian' is really Viola, who has been shipwrecked and is only pretending to be a boy. To make matters worse, Viola has fallen for Orsino. Meanwhile, Olivia's uncle, Sir Toby Belch, and his friend, Sir Andrew Aguecheek, Maria the maid, Feste the jester and Fabian, a servant, plot to make a fool out of Malvolio, Olivia's head steward, which only adds to the comic confusion. Finally, Viola's twin brother, who really IS Sebastian, arrives and Viola's true identity is revealed - but how will Olivia and Orsino react to the news?

The production will be directed by Vernon Keeble-Watson, well known to audiences as a regular director and performer with many local theatre companies, including The New Venture Players, Kytes Theatre Group and Romford Summer Theatre. He is keen to bring a new dimension to the production by setting it in the 1670s and featuring music by Purcell as well as live songs, which will hopefully be played and sang by members of the cast!

The play will be staged at
The Rockery, Raphael Park, Romford at 8pm on 19-21 and 26-28 June 2014. The group are also staging a family matinee performance at 3pm on Sunday 22 June 2014.

Raphael Park is a public space with a number of pathways which are accessible to wheelchair users. However, the public toilets are not always accessible and the situation is currently more problematic than usual, as regeneration works are currently being undertaken in the park, which has resulted in some pathways being taken out of service.

If you, or a member of your party, will be attending in a wheelchair, please email so we can ensure we are able to support your access requirements.
