Thanks to HOME who brought this one to our attention. They first screened this NT Live event back in April 2017, now National Theatre Live will be showing this for free via their YouTube Channel for a week.

Tune in to see the brilliant Tamsin Greig as Malvolia in a new twist on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity.

A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love.

The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia’s upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.

Simon Godwin (NT Live: Man and Superman, NT Live: The Beaux’ Stratagem) directed this joyous production with Tamsin Greig (Friday Night Dinner, Black Books, Episodes) as a transformed Malvolia.

National Theatre Live is showing many of their productions online for free, keep an eye on their YouTube channel. HOME continues to deliver brilliant online content, follow them on social media to keep up-to-date with what’s next.
