Twelfth Night at Southwark Playhouse

Southwark Playhouse's production of Twelfth Night is charming.

One feels one has been invited on to Shakespeare's island, rather than into a playhouse. Perhaps it is the scenery which stretches into the audience or the intimate proximity to the actors which makes one feel as if one is involved in the action.

The acting captures the intricate quirks of each character. I was especially impressed by Feste, which was played much more forcefully than in other productions, with both comic and serious effect.

If you enjoy leaving the theatre feeling you have participated in an adventure with the actors, I recommend this production.
