Archives - Twelfth Night

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Eric Chorley

Saturday 2nd – Saturday 9th February 1980 in the Auditorium

First performed before the Queen on 6 January, 1601, this delightful light-hearted comedy reflects the happy disorder of Elizabethan Twelfth Nights when the ‘Lord of Misrule’ encouraged young people to make fun of the pomposity of their elders; when the self-important were brought low and the humble, for a few hours, exalted. “Feste rules OK” as we might now put it.
