WP-12th-Night-Stephen-Fry

 

Prepare for an extraordinary theatrical experience when Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre presents Twelfth Night this weekend.  Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night is a moving comedy of loss and misplaced love and includes some of the most exquisite songs Shakespeare ever wrote.

Mark Rylance, winner of multiple Olivier and Tony Awards, and much loved actor, raconteur and writer Stephen Fry star in the Tim Carroll directed production which was one of London theatre’s biggest hits of summer 2012, completely selling out all of its performances at the Globe and creating queues around the block in the West End.

Critics raved that Mark Rylance’s ‘dazzling high definition performances’ which lifted the production ‘into the sublime’. Stephen Fry’s turn as Malvolio – his first return to the stage in 17 years – won him huge acclaim from critics and audiences and a What’s On Stage Award for Best Supporting Actor, voted for by 60,000 members of the public.

The all-star cast also includes the multi-talented Johnny Flynn, a successful singer-songwriter and a talented actor who was nominated for an Olivier Award for his performance in the smash hit Jerusalem, and Roger Lloyd Pack, who played Barty Crouch in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Twelfth Night is an all-male Globe ‘Original Practices’ production that aims to replicate as closely as possible the music, costumes, dance and scenery of Shakespeare’s time. Audiences will experience the world’s most famous stage as if they were there in person – the performance has been captured in high definition and will be broadcast in its entirety in pristine digital cinema quality, with full 5.1 surround sound.

Twelfth Night screens at Palace Byron Bay Cinema at 1pm on Saturday and Sunday, June 22-23.

  1. Gosh, I was so very excited at the prospect of the Globe Theatre bringing one of its productions to Australia…until I finally got to the last paragraph, and read that this is a film, not a live performance. Sooo disappointed. Misleadingly written piece, methinks. Cheers.
