Twelfth Night

Headlining the Cockpit Stage this summer, the brilliantly bold Not Too Tame return with an electrifying production of Twelfth Night, starring Les Dennis as Malvolio.

The company that brought you ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ return with their unique brand of high octane theatre in a hilarious yet heart-breaking tale of unrequited love.

Inspired by the world of the music industry, Not Too Tame are turning it up to 11 for their production of ‘Twelfth Night’. Shakespeare’s comedy of mistaken identities gets an injection of riffs, ruffs and riotous partying.

Directed by Jimmy Fairhurst (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Palace of Varieties)
