Description

The HandleBards are a cycling theatre company who pedal Shakespeare plays to outdoor venues all across the UK. Join them for a bicycle-powered, laugh-out-loud production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. And what's the play about? Well, 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. Meanwhile, a bunch of Olivia's servants plot to make a fool out of her pompous butler, Malvolio. There's drunkenness, frivolity and cross-dressing aplenty.

5 STARS - The HandleBards' production of Twelfth Night at the Fringe is absolutely fabulous! The four cast members rode their bicycles over 1000 miles before arriving in Edinburgh. But don't imagine they're gonna be a weather beaten greasy mess with mud stained attire performing in bike helmets. Nope. They are well scrubbed, and this play is well polished. The four of them do a masterful job of playing all the parts while occasionally promoting an audience member to join them on stage. It's comic genius. Don't miss it!
