Globe On Tour: Twelfth Night


The touring ensemble is Eight actors and a backstage team Three different productions. Um, Pericles, Twelfth Night and The Comedy of Errors We pack our suitcases We’ll have our little van And go on the road All over the world [sound of clapping] [light string music] Twelfth Night is A play about a shipwreck Twins: You got Viola and Sebastian who’ve been separated from shipwreck And they come to this island and are drawn into the politics of the people and a love triangle happens Orsino has feelings for Olivia who is in mourning for her brother. Olivia falls in love with Viola And then there’s, like, this household, of like, servants, erm, who have, like, this war that’s going on between them It’s one of those plays that sort of has like a little bit of everything Everyone it seems, starts out lost and sad It’s a love story, but it’s also wickedly funny Everyone kind of works it out And eventually finds a place where they feel comfortable…except Malvolio… How could you explain Twelfth Night?! It’s, like, insane! It’s actually, it’s actually insane, isn’t it?! [music fades to end]
