Twelfth Night - Sale Botanic Gardens

  • Entertainment Centre 100 Foster Street Sale, VIC, 3850 Australia (map)

If music be the food of love... Play on!

Laughing ourselves silly with: Sir Toby Belch - the man believed to have invented partying, Sir Andrew Aguecheek - dispossessed of any intelligence he is naturally silly, Malvolio - a power hungry puritan who falls from a great moral height when pushed by Sir Toby, Maria - the housemaid who outwits Malvolio and housetrains Sir Toby, Viola - a shipwrecked girl who cross-dresses as a boy to get a job, Olivia - deeply grieving for her brother's death, she refuses Duke Orsino's overtures and rebounds by falling in love with the cross-dressed Viola and Orsino - the lovesick Duke pining for Olivia but seems to fancy Viola dressed as a boy and is quick to swap loves when he discovers she is really a girl.

The Australian Shakespeare Company continues its much-heralded tradition of presenting Shakespeare Under the Stars in the Sale Botanic Gardens.
