Twelfth NightThe Globe welcomes back its first artistic director, Mark Rylance, whose stunning performance in Jerusalem has been bowling over audiences in London and New York. The actor returns to the Southwark theatre for the first time since he left in 2005, starring in an all-male award-winning production of Twelfth Night by Original Practices. Rylance plays Olivia in the production, reviving a role he took on ten years ago when the show premiered in 2002. With a celebrated cast in some of Shakespeare's most loved roles you can expect comedy, cruelty and plenty of cross-dressing in this bittersweet production about two teams battling within the house of Olivia. On one hand, the lovesick lord Orsino plots against the heart of indifferent Olivia. On the other hand, a vexed alliance of servants scheme against her steward Malvolio. With traditional Shakespearian costume, music and dance this production at the Globe promises to transport you right back to 1601.

 

About Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

This replica of the Shakespeare's 16th century theatre, reconstructed just 200 yards from its original site, is the brainchild of American actor and director Sam Wanamaker. Built in wood and thatch, using techniques from 400 years ago, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre opened in 1996. More about Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
