Twelfth Night

April 2022

 

Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare; performed at The Montgomery on 1st & 2nd April 2022.

Join Butter Side Up Theatre Company in the charming British Pub ‘Illyria’. 


With landlord - Duke Orsino -  fawning over VIP customer Olivia, the new bartender Viola disguising herself as a boy, and regulars Toby and Andrew drinking the taps dry, no-one even notices the tricks and pranks the other staff are getting up to.


This modern setting of one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies brings together the fun and frivolity of a classic play with a cosy open-mic-night atmosphere, adding to Butter Side Up’s reputation for new and interesting productions.

With more love triangles than one can count, this modern setting for Twelfth Night is guaranteed to bring a laugh and smile to your face.
