Redgrave "Shakesbeer" Festival 2019
It's 1945 in Redgrave and the news coming over the airwaves is huge; our boys have done it. The war is over.
The tone of Duke Orsiono's celebratory garden party is bittersweet though. Yes, the war is won; but the casualties are many.
The Duke's love, Olivia, has lost her brother, Sir Toby Belch has returned a drinker, and a pair of seemingly identical, yet unknown, soldiers have rocked up to the party uninvited...
An afternoon of mistaken identity, unrequited love and social classes crashing against each other unfolds as the party drags on - it's just as well there's plenty of staff on hand serving drinks!
A classic story reimagined at a confusing crossroads in British History, lit up with a dazzling jazz band underscoring the madness. Redgrave Shakesbeer Festival's production of Twelfth Night is not to be missed!
Performed at Star Wing Brewery, 11-14 July 2019.
