This summer, RoughCast bring you TWELFTH NIGHT on St Clement’s Common in Rushall. Following their sell out tour of a Christmas Carol they return to Shakespeare with a typically fast-moving and energetic production of this most delightful of his romantic comedies.
Shipwrecked twins, Viola and Sebastian, wash up on the shores of sleepy Illyria where Viola, thinking herself alone, dons man’s clothing and seeks employment with Duke Orsino and is sent to woo beautiful Olivia on his behalf. Olivia inconveniently falls in love with Viola. To this we can add the drunken antics of Olivia’s uncle Toby and her hapless suitor Andrew Anguecheek and their ongoing battle with the pompous steward Malvolio. To cap it all Viola’s twin arrives to be mistaken for his sister to whom he bears an uncanny resemblance.
The action is transposed to the world of the Spaghetti Western and it’s perfect entertainment for a hot and lazy summer evening.
The production will take place on saturday 8th July starting at 6:30pm. The gates and the bar will be open at 5pm so just bing your picnics, chairs and rugs but, please, no dogs!
There is parking available and marquees for shelter in case of a summer shower.
Tickets are £10 and £8,50 for under 18s and can be obtained by ringing 01379 741992 or 01379 741623. They will also be available on the gate.
