I, Malvolio reimagines Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night from the point of view of its most notoriously abused steward. It’s a charged, hilarious and sometimes unsettling rant from a man adrift in front of a cruel audience. Part abject clown, part theatre-hating disciplinarian, Malvolio asks his audience to explore the pleasure we take in other people’s suffering.

I, Malvolio has toured the world since it opened in 2010 – from Shanghai to Sydney, from Moscow to Mumbai. This is a rare chance to see a performance by one of the UK’s most original theatre makers. Tim Crouch is an Obie-award-winning performer, playwright and director. His plays include An Oak Tree, The Author, Adler & Gibb and Beginners.

Suitable for: 11 years +

After Tim Crouch’s performance of I, Malvolio there will be a post-show discussion.

…masterful…Crouch is a performer at the top of his game, sharing a text that plays as much with intelligence as slapstick” 

The Guardian *****

Crouch’s fresh, funny, poignant and thought-provoking ‘I, Malvolio’ is his finest work to-date
