Mistaken identity, love triangles and comedy = Twelfth Night
Mistaken identity, love triangles and comedy with Twelfth Night at Central Park Malvern East this March
Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare's most adored plays and we are in luck because The Melbourne Shakespeare Company will be performing it this March in Central Park, Malvern East.
Central Park in Malvern East is one of Melbourne's most beautiful and oldest gardens, having been established in 1906! Acting as the perfect backdrop, guests are welcome to bring a picnic and enjoy William Shakespeare's comedic genius under the sun or stars.
Twelfth Night is the story of Viola, who becomes shipwrecked on the shores of a strange and mysterious land. Devastated at being separated for the first time from her twin brother, but not without courage, she sets out to make things right. With more than a few hiccups along the way including mistaken identity and a love triangle bigger than Ben-Hur, this play is highly entertaining to watch and it has all the right ingredients with clever wordplay, misdirection, comedy and in true Shakespeare style, oodles of mischief.
The show runs for around 90 minutes and you can bring a picnic blanket. Tickets are well priced at $30 adults / $25 concession & seniors / $20 kids (under 5 years old are free) . Sun hats are recommended for matinee performances.
