The HandleBards, the world’s first cycling theatre company, return to Asia with their riotous all-male version of Shakespeare’s hilarious and heartbreaking comedy! In true HandleBards style, this production will feature an array of inventive props and costumes, including the most amazing yellow stockings (with suspenders!) and cross garters for Malvolio. Combined with their incredible energy, whirlwind physical theatre and some clever improv, this show is ideal even for those averse to Shakespeare!
Described by award-winning actor Sir Ian McKellen as “uproariously funny”, the company has performed in over 100 different venues, and are commended by critics and audiences alike for their highly visual and very accessible style of Shakespeare.
Duke Orsino is in love with Lady Olivia, but she won’t have anything to do with suitors. Viola is shipwrecked and believes her twin brother Sebastian to be dead. She pretends to be a boy and becomes a servant to Orsino. Olivia falls in love with Viola, believing her to be a boy, whilst Viola falls in love with Orsino. Then Viola’s twin turns up… Meanwhile, Sir Toby Belch (Olivia’s uncle), Sir Andrew Aguecheek (his friend), Maria (a maid) and Feste (a jester) plot to make a fool out of Olivia’s pompous butler, Malvolio!
