Twelfth Night at Home Farm
Temple Newsam Rd, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS15 0AD
“[A] rollicking, town and country, field and woodland production that is fast, fun, even furious”York Press
Front Room Productions proudly presents TWELFTH NIGHT: a fun-filled, bite-sized adaptation of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedy, transported to modern-day rural Yorkshire, delivered in the original tongue.
City slicker siblings Viola and Sebastian have been stranded in the strange, Northern lands of Illyria – home to farmers, country folk, and a great deal of sheep. You’d think locals Olivia and Orsino might help them out, but they have problems of their own. Viola, desperately seeking Sebastian, soon becomes embroiled in a series of complicated love-triangles and ludicrous misunderstandings, fit to rival even the most baffling of modern-day Rom-Coms. As emotions run high in a flourish of cross-dressing capers and musical madness, will Viola ever find her brother?
Enjoy the Bard’s brilliance alongside your favourite pop songs (with a Twelfth Night twist!) in a unique yet faithful promenade production around the cobbled yards and traditional buildings of Home Farm at Temple Newsam Estate. It’s great fun for all the family, no matter whether you’re a verse virtuoso or Shakespeare stranger!
Audience response to Front Room Productions’ Twelfth Night at Dunstarn Farm in 2017:
“Absolutely fabulous production some quirky and laugh out loud scenes. Made Shakespeare come alive for me.”
“Thoroughly enjoyed the show. Fresh and fun – songs brought it bang up to date..”
“Amazing use of the farm for everyone to experience a unique adaptation of Twelfth Night, something unlike I have ever seen before. Well done!!”
