Wed 10 February Doors 7pm:
Twelfth Night rehearsed reading, Guerrilla Shakespeare Company
(rescheduled from Twelfth Night)
Shakespeare's funniest play was written purely as a piece of fun -
there are no royal intrigues, no murders, no vast sweeps of history,
just the story of a brother and sister cast up on a hostile shore each
believing the other to be dead; a love story of mistaken identity
Suitable for adults and children over eight
The performance is presented informally, with a mix of professional
and amateur actors, and directed by Dorian Kelly
