Folksy Theatre: Twelfth Night

August 1, 2017 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Event Navigation

Forde Abbey is delighted to welcome back Folksy Theatre with a performance of Twelfth Night in the gardens at 7pm on Tuesday 1st August 2017.

The story focuses on twin siblings, Viola and Sebastian, who are separated in a shipwreck. Viola takes on the appearance of a man to be accepted to work in Duke Orsino’s household and it is here that the fun begins. Essentially, a play about mistaken identities, about love and the madness it can drive us to. The production will be filled with Folksy’s touch of live music, bold characters and audience interaction. Bring along your picnics, blankets and folding chairs to enjoy this wonderful open-air performance!
