DVD: Shakespeare's Twelfth Night

Recorded live at Shakespeare’s Globe, London, June 2012

One of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies, Twelfth Night was ‘blissfully reborn’ (Telegraph) for the 2012/13 season at London’s Globe Theatre, under the direction of Tim Carroll. The hilarious tale of misdirection and deception is performed here by an all-male cast, among whom we find Mark Rylance as Olivia and Roger Lloyd-Pack as Sir Anthony Aguecheek. The production also marks Stephen Fry’s triumphant return to the stage as the pompous Malvolio, ridiculous in his yellow stockings.

"...no single actor dominates this radical yet perfectly balanced production at the Globe"

The Guardian

"The irony is that Fry's performance – intelligently pondered, generous to the other actors, and almost studiedly not a "star turn" by a celebrity guest artiste – is exactly the opposite in tendency."

The Independent
