written & performed by Tim Crouch
25 February 2016
Tim Crouch is one of the UK’s most original theatre makers. In his highly acclaimed one-man show, I, Malvolio, he re-imagines Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night from the point of view of its most notoriously abused steward.
It’s a hilarious, charged and sometimes unsettling rant from a man adrift in front of a cruel audience. Part abject clown, part theatre-hating disciplinarian, Malvolio asks his audience to explore the pleasure we take in other people’s suffering.
The show has toured the world since it opened in 2010 - from Shanghai to Sydney, from Moscow to Manila. But this is a unique opportunity to see Malvolio unleashed in the round for the first time.
Tim Crouch is an Obie-award winning performer, playwright and director. His plays include An Oak Tree (Traverse Theatre and international tour), The Author (Royal Court Theatre and international tour) and Adler & Gibb (Royal Court Theatre).
