Twelfth Night in Cardiff @ShermanCymru

March 30, 2014

 

Dates:        1 & 2 April
Prices:

£15 – £22
Concessionsu: £2 off
Under 25s: Half price

Two worlds collide in Filter’s explosive new take on Shakespeare’s lyrical Twelfth Night. Olivia’s melancholic, puritanical household clashes head on with Sir Toby’s insatiable appetite for drunken debauchery.

Orsino’s relentless pursuit of Olivia and Malvolio’s extraordinary transformation typify the madness of love in Illyria: land of make-believe and illusion.

This story of romance, satire and mistaken identity is crafted into one of the most exciting and accessible Shakespeare productions of recent years. Experience the madness of love in this heady world where riotous gig meets Shakespeare.

Richard Burton’s Hamlet Screening

March 6, 2014

Tuesday 18 March 7pm

Richard Burton makes his debut in the theatre that bears his name and for one night only!

Filmed during a Broadway performance for release in US cinemas, this is a Hamlet acted in rehearsal clothes, stripped of all extraneous trappings with Richard Burton at the very height of his acting powers.

Venue: Richard Burton Theatre

Tickets: £15 £12 concessions
Events booked online are subject to a £1.75 transaction charge
