SHAKESPEARE’S classic comedy Twelfth Night is being shown tonight (Thursday, April 23) as part of the National Theatre at Home programme.

Viola (Tamara Lawrence) is washed ashore after her ship crashes on the rocks. Determined to survive on her own without her twin Sebastian (Daniel Ezra), she steps out to explore a new land - beginning a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love.

Tamsin Grieg (Episodes, Green Wing), Doon Mackichan (Smack the Pony, Plebs), Phoebe Fox (The Hollow Crown, A View from the Bridge) and Daniel Rigby (Eric and Ernie, One Man, Two Guvnors) complete the cast.

Stream the production for free via the National Theatre’s YouTube channel. The productions are streamed every Thursday and are also available on demand for seven days.
