About Twelfth Night

Directed by Christopher Luscombe and set in 1890s England, Twelfth Night originally opened in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon in November 2017. As with all of our Shakespeare productions since 2013, we also broadcast Twelfth Night into cinemas across the world, and into schools for free.

Christopher Luscombe, who directed the show, said: “In these testing times it’s wonderful that theatres are sharing such a range of their productions online. I do hope Twelfth Night will help to keep everyone entertained. As the play centres on two lost souls trying to find their way in an unfamiliar world, it may well speak to us all as never before!”

Twelfth Night was generously supported by the Twelfth Night Syndicate
