Not Too Tame and Shakespeare North Playhouse have announced that Les Dennis will step into the iconic role of Malvolio, the puritanical and pompous servant of the countess Olivia, in their dynamic co-production of Shakespeare’s timeless comedy, TWELFTH NIGHT, which runs at Shakespeare North Playhouse from 7 to 29 June 2024.
Following the resounding success of their previous collaboration, ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, the producing duo return to captivate audiences with a signature blend of exhilarating and anarchic experimental theatre.
Not Too Tame & Shakespeare North Playhouse give this classic comedy a contemporary revamp with a dose of riffs, ruffs, and riotous partying. Prepare to be transported into a world where the stage is set, the music is pumping, and love takes centre stage as the ultimate headliner.
Trinifold Management (The Who, Jimmy Paige, UB40, Standin Man) will be opening up their archives and working alongside the design team to help inform this production.
Directed by Not Too Tame’s Artistic Director, Jimmy Fairhurst (A Midsummer Night’s Dream– Not Too Tame, Shakespeare North Playhouse; The Social– Not Too Tame, Northern Soul; Palace of Varieties– Derby Theatre) this rendition of TWELFTH NIGHT is a raucous celebration of unrequited love and mistaken identities, set against the backdrop of the music scene.
Open auditions for TWELFTH NIGHT will be announced in due course.
