Twelfth Night

Edward Hall directs Propeller, an all-male company, in two comedies full of mistaken identity and transformation.

In The Taming of the Shrew, a man playing a boy dresses up as a girl, which confuses Christopher Sly. Whilst in Twelfth Night, a man plays a girl disguised as a boy, which confuses everybody. What begins as an idle trick played on an unwitting drunk at a party in Padua, ends in bittersweet confusion on the island of Illyria. Over the course of the two plays, Shakespeare takes us on a journey that constantly reminds us that the opposite is always true.

Propeller mix a rigorous approach to the text with a modern physical aesthetic. Their work - which imbues Shakespeare's stories with a freshness that appeals to young and old alike - has received acclaim around the world and they enjoy a regular residency at BAM in New York.
