I, Malvolio by Tim Crouch

Sun 14 May

★★★★★  The Guardian
★★★★ The Daily Telegraph

“Multi-award-winning playwright and performer Tim Crouch re-imagines Twelfth Night in this, his brilliant, hilarious one-man show, a charged and often unsettling rant from a man ‘notoriously wronged’, a man adrift in front of mocking spectators.

Malvolio draws us into the madness of Shakespeare’s play, makes it his own, and in doing so forces us to confront our own cruelty.
