Twelfth Night

William Shakespeare

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

When twins Sebastian and Viola are separated in a shipwreck but equally unaware of the other’s survival, a comedic sequence of events follow. Viola disguises herself as a young man, leading to a series of love triangles unfolding. Meanwhile, Sebastian is rescued by a sea captain, Antonio, adding to the later confusion between characters and their attempts to find love.

This well-known Shakespearean comedy explores identities, romance and friendship with an all-BME cast and crew. This production of Twelfth Night promises to be exciting and culturally diverse. In the style of a modern rom-com, this brings a fantastic energy to one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays.

This production is recommended for ages 12 and above.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
