A horrific storm separates brother and sister, leaving Viola in an unknown land and needing to protect herself….by dressing up as a man?!

Expect live music, bold physicality and sharp comedy as Original Impact presents Shakespeare's most enduring cross-dressing comedy Twelfth Night in a brand new actor-muso production which bubbles with energy and youthfulness.

Original Impact return to the Blue Elephant with one of Shakespeare's most popular plays following the sell-out success of A Working Title last year.

Twelfth Night runs for approximately two hours including an interval

Found in Translation is a series of short plays drawn from theatrical storytelling workshops carried out by The Dot Collective at care centres in the South East.

Characters, places and poetry were created. Memories, music and thoughts were shared. These one hour workshops found many magical stories from the dynamic minds of the clients, regardless of age, disability or dementia. Playwrights Alexander Moschos and Hester Kent developed some of these ideas into this series of short plays.

These plays are collaboration between the many minds met during the workshops and the playwrights.

Viking survival guide:

Avoid the elves.
Avoid the dwarves.
Avoid the giants.
Definitely avoid all other humans.
Avoid both underworlds.
Whatever you do, DON’T offend the eagles.
Don’t enter game shows.
Remember cheese sandwiches for the sea monster.
Do not drink ANYTHING. Absolutely anything at all.
If truth be told, being slain in battle is advisable, but only if it’s heroic.

Best of luck
Thor
