Professional theatre company Rain or Shine will be performing Shakespeare’s cross-gartered and hilarious cross-dressing comedy ‘Twelfth Night’ at four open air venues in the WW! area this summer. Lost and alone, Viola disguises herself as a man and sets forth. Before long, chaos ensues as mistaken identity, love, pride and alcohol set a host of comical characters on a series of hilarious adventures. Hopeless romantics, drunken knights, a pompous steward and fools galore abound in one of William Shakespeare’s most celebrated comedies: “If music be the food of love, play on!” Family audiences are requested to bring along low-backed seating or rugs. The performance is at Whitley Court on Saturday 1 July , Kinlet Hall on Sunday 2 July, Severn Valley Country Park on Friday 11 August and Stokesay Castle on Thursday 24 August.
