Bell Shakespeare returns to the Redland Performing Arts Centre stage with one of Shakespeare’s most celebrated comedies, Twelfth Night, on September 2.
The performance is part of the company’s national tour.
Heather Fairbairn’s fresh retelling of the romantic comedy is a dark collision of hidden identities and unrequited love, which ultimately asks us to find light in the dark.
Twelfth Night tells the story of the aristocratic Viola, who finds herself washed up in a strange new land.
Determined to survive, she disguises herself as a man to secure a position in the household of Duke Orsino, where passion, intrigue and mistaken identity ensue.
The production stars film, television and theatre actor Alfie Gledhill in the lead role of Viola alongside Keith Agius, Isabel Burton, Amy Hack and others.
Directed by Heather Fairbairn, who has worked internationally with the Royal Opera House and the Royal Court Theatre in London, the production features original music from ARIA Award-winner Sarah Blasko, bringing a unique vision to Shakespeare’s most musical play.
Tickets are from $30. Book on 3829 8131 or rpac.com.au.
