Multi-award-winning playwright and performer Tim Crouch re-imagines Twelfth Night in this, his brilliant one-man show.
I, Malvolio is a charged and often unsettling rant from a man “notoriously wronged”, a man adrift in front of cruel spectators. Unlocking Shakespeare’s play for new audiences and telling a timeless story of bullying, prudery and practical jokes, Crouch’s Malvolio draws his audience into the madness of Shakespeare’s play and claims it as his own.
I, Malvolio is a show for anyone who has ever been told off, called a name or has fallen in love with the wrong person. It’s Twelfth Night told from the loser’s perspective. Since it opened at the Brighton Festival in 2010, it has delighted audiences on five continents – from Shanghai to Sydney, from Moscow to Manilla. It has run at the Edinburgh festival and in New York, in London and Vancouver.
Unmissable for anyone aged over 11.
