NT Live presents Twelfth Night live on screen at the Grand!
A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love. The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia's upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible. Simon Godwin (NT Live: Man and Superman, NT Live: The Beaux’ Stratagem) directs this joyous new production with Greig as a transformed Malvolia. an ensemble cast that includes Daniel Rigby (Flowers, Jericho), Tamara Lawrence (Undercover), Doon Mackichan (Smack the Pony) and Daniel Ezra (The Missing, Undercover).
So bring a friend and experience an NT Live performance that made Susannah Clapp of The Guardian rave “there is almost more stuff and notions than even the Olivier can contain. There is real boisterousness and some loss: of lyricism and longing” –The National Theatre of London's live simulcast hi-definition presentation at The Grand of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night starring Tamsin Greig, presented at 2 pm on Thursday, April 27th.
The Grand is proud to be presenting all forms of theatre including various series of high definition simulcasts and encore performances from British theater including Tom Stoppard's classic, existential, comedic take on Shakespeare’s Hamlet- Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, screening in a special, encore, closed-captioned hi-def presentation on Thursday, May 18that 2 pm.
