Tim Crouch re-imagines Twelfth Night in a brilliant one-man show that unlocks Shakespeare’s play and tells a timeless story of bullying, prudery and practical jokes. I, Malvolio is a charged, hilarious and sometimes unsettling rant from a man adrift in front of a cruel audience. Part abject clown, part theatre-hating disciplinarian, Malvolio asks his audience to explore the pleasure we take in other people’s suffering. This is a show for anyone who has ever been told off, called a name or has fallen in love with the wrong person.
Tim Crouch is one of Britain’s most innovative and respected theatre- makers – and a hugely experienced exponent of Shakespeare for young people. ‘Crouch’s ﬁnest work to date … delivers an excellent explication of the Twelfth Night plot… but it does much more than that.’ Daily Telegraph Co-commissioned by Brighton Festival and Singapore Arts Festival.
