“Two worlds collide in Filter’s explosive new take on Shakespeare’s lyrical Twelfth Night.
“Olivia’s melancholic, puritanical household clashes head on with Sir Toby’s insatiable appetite for drunken debauchery. Orsino’s relentless pursuit of Olivia and Malvolio’s extraordinary transformation typify the madness of love in Illyria: land of make-believe and illusion.
“This story of romance, satire and mistaken identity is crafted into one of the most exciting and accessible Shakespeare productions of recent years. Experience the madness of love in this heady world where riotous gig meets Shakespeare.” – from the Park Theatre website
“Filter’s lo-fi, ninety minute remix of Shakespeare’s comedy infects the audience with the play’s celebratory spirit of madness from the start...You leave feeling slightly changed…” – Metro
Following an intial phase when I booked a batch of group seats located together for members who prepaid, this option is now closed. If you would like to join us, you will need to book direct with the theatre.
After booking, if you’re open to sitting next to another member, feel free to mention your seat number (and whether stalls or circle) in the comments below, for group members who might want to book a neighbouring seat.
Please contribute £1 on arrival (to help defray the approx. £100 per annum that Meetup charges to run a group) – thanks in advance.
In the days immediately prior, I’ll circulate details of arrangements to meet before the performance. We will have drinks in the theatre cafe-bar after the play, for anyone who would like to stay on afterward for a conversation about the play.
