theatre on the tea lawn
twelfth night by william shakespeare
After the great success of The Importance of Being Earnest in 2016, the award-winning Shooting Stars Theatre Company return to Lauderdale House with a fresh and modern interpretation of Twelfth Night.
Shooting Stars was formed in 2006 by Helen Crosse and quickly gained a reputation for producing high quality professional theatre. They produce classic Shakespeare but bring it up to date and make it relevant to a modern audience with modern dress and in updated settings and ‘worlds’. Definately theatre for the whole family!
Shooting Star’s productions are always accessible, so even those not versed in the Bard’s comic play will be rolling with laughter. This is a play of mistaken identity and love triangles and takes its rightful place as one of Shakespeare’s best loved plays. Confused identity, cross-dressing and cross-garters are sure to make this an evening to remember!
Tips for our audience:
If it rains the ‘show will go on’ – we will only cancel in very extreme circumstances
There are no refunds but if we do have to abandon the show before the interval you will be offered a ticket for another night subject to availability
Bring something warm as even on a hot day the evenings can get chilly
The Café will be open for you to purchase food and drink on the evening but you are welcome to bring a picnic along with a blanket or chair to sit on. Chairs will be seated at the back of the Tea Lawn.
