Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night will be performed at the Masque Theatre, 37 Main Road, Muizenberg, from Wednesday July 5 to Saturday July 15.

Twelfth Night is one of the bard’s classic comedies, featuring a cross-dressing love triangle, a wise-cracking fool, drunken shenanigans and a pair of yellow cross-gartered stockings.

Director Barbara Basel is playing into the theme of freedom and chaos from the traditional festival of the twelfth night of Christmas by setting this production in 1920s Germany and the opulent Weimar Republic. Instead of classic palaces, audiences will get cabaret nightclubs.

The cast includes Wayne Ronne as Duke Orsino, Tami Schrire as Lady Olivia, Hannah Molyneux as Feste the fool, and Kathryn Griffiths as Maria.

Tickets cost from R100 to R120. Book through Quicket or email to organise a block booking discount for more than 10 tickets.
