24 Oct 2012 to 03 Nov 2012Minster of St Mary The Virgin Church
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Hal Chambers
We wanted RBL's first full-scale production to be a celebration of what live theatre is all about.
'Twelfth Night', therefore, "exploded onto stage with energy and verve" and was full of live music sung and played by the actors, and stunning lighting effects. Young life was injected into the incredible, ancient Minster Church and people from all across Berkshire, many of whom didn't have an interest in Shakespeare before, rose to their feet as the actors bowed.
With a folk feel given to the design and an emphasis put on the relevance of the characters in today's world, our production was as fun to a child as it was their grandparents, no matter what their education or background.
It was fun theatre.
