Twelfth Night

William Shakespeare

Influenced by many of the traditional themes of Twelfth Night's end of Christmas celebrations, Shakespeare's comedy hinges on mistaken identity and role reversal.

There have been well over a dozen performances of Twelfh Night at the RSC since the early 1960s. The most recent staging was in 2012.
