Shakespeare’s Illyrian odyssey, set in the glorious setting of Chester’s Grosvenor Park.
Washed up on the shore and fearing the worst when she can’t find her brother Sebastian, Viola does what every self respecting Shakespearean heroine would do – she dresses as a man and confuses the amorous antennae of everyone she meets, including her mistress Olivia and Duke Orsino. Olivia’s other suitors includes her manservant, Malvolio, who is driven mad by his friends as a cruel joke, only to find himself utterly lost in our incredible adventure sequel, Masters Are You Mad?
Picnic theatre at its best, with a cast of the country’s finest actors to guide you.
