Tim Crouch: I, Malvolio
Live at LICA, Lancaster Litfest and The Dukes present:
TIM CROUCH: I, MALVOLIO
Tim Crouch re-imagines Twelfth Night in a brilliant one-man show that unlocks Shakespeare’s play and tells a timeless story of bullying, prudery and practical jokes.
I, Malvolio is a charged, hilarious 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. This is a show for anyone who has ever been told off, called a name or has fallen in love with the wrong person.
Tim Crouch is one of Britain’s most innovative and respected theatre-makers, and a hugely experienced exponent of Shakespeare for young people.
