Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” – Saturday 12 August 2017

Folksy Theatre will be touring in summer 2017 with a production of one of Shakespeare’s most famous comedies, Twelfth Night. Two twin siblings, Viola and Sebastian, are separated in a shipwreck and Viola takes on the appearance of a man to be accepted to work in Duke Orsino’s household. It is here that the fun begins.
