Twelfth Night

William Shakespeare

14h - 20 February


William Shakespeare

Twelfth Night

Duke Orsino is in love with lady Olivia, but she won’t have anything to do with suitors. Viola is shipwrecked and believes her twin brother Sebastian to be dead. She pretends to be a boy and becomes a servant to Orsino. Olivia falls in love with Viola, believing her to be a boy - and Viola falls in love with Orsino. Then Viola’s twin turns up...

Performed in the usual HandleBards style - so expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter,

Directed by James Farrell (West-End, the Chichester Festival Theatre, and at the Royal Shakespeare Company.)

Relaxed Performance

Open to everyone, but specifically adapted for children on the autism spectrum or with other sensory/communications disorders. It is also ideal for very young children experiencing their first theatre show. This type of performance - although with exactly the same content and length as a regular performance - aims to provide a more relaxed and supportive atmosphere in order to reduce anxiety.

    Every show we present in Malaysia is subjected to three simple questions: will it bring new audiences to the theatre, will they enjoy themselves, and will they come back?!
