LYMPSTONE ENTERTAINMENTS – Shakespeare in the Garden
Sat 16 July from 6pm (picnics from 5pm) – Cygnet Theatre perform Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night
IF MUSIC BE THE FOOD OF LOVE – BRING A PICNIC
One of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, Twelfth Night, will be performed by Cygnet Theatre in Robin and Judith Telfer’s garden on Saturday 16th July at 6pm.
It is directed by Amanda Knott.
Lympstone Entertainments invites you to bring a picnic from 5pm, as well as a chair, to settle into this beautiful woodland setting, which doubles as the mythical land of Illyria for one summer’s evening.
Here you will encounter shipwrecked twins, Feste the singing jester, the two hard-drinking knights Sir Toby Belch and Sir Andrew Aguecheek, the cross-gartered Malvolio, the cross-dressing Viola, loved by Olivia, who is loved by the Duke, who is loved by Viola. Only Shakespeare can untangle this plot.
Cygnet has served for nearly 40 years as Exeter’s Theatre School, whose student actors bring a joyful production to Lympstone each summer, entertaining our enthusiastic audience amongst the trees and bushes of this natural open-air theatre.
“Present mirth hath present laughter… Youth’s a stuff will not endure…”
