Twelfth Night

Filter's radically-cut, fast-paced version of Shakespeare's much-loved comedywhere classical verse meets riotous gig, directed by Sean Holmes.

Created by Filter in asscociation with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Filter’s explosive and irreverent new take on this story of romance, satire and mistaken identity combines dynamic narrative drive with a torrent of sound and music creating one of the most accessible Shakespeare productions of recent years.  

Originally commissioned for The RSC’s Complete Works Festival in 2006, Twelfth Night has performed at The British Council Showcase in Edinburgh,  The Tricycle in London, and toured Europe (Holland, Germany and Spain) and the UK extensively.

NOMINATED FOR BEST SHAKESPEAREAN PRODUCTION (Whatsonstage Awards 2008).

Twelfth Night can next be seen on tour in the USA in March 2017 at the Wallis Annenberg Center, Beverly Hills and Cal Performances, Berkeley.
