Our set text, Twelfth Night, was vividly brought to life at the Young Vic theatre. Their new Artistic Director, Kwama Kwei-Armah had updated the play to include an awe inspiring community choir with songs composed to capture the key themes. Love in all its forms was examined in a riot of urban contemporary colour. Viola/ Caesario enjoyed her freedom asking, ‘Is it as simple as putting on a pair of pants?’ While Malvolio delighted us with his cross-gartered lycra exercise kit and his narcissistic posturing.
The performance delivered a deeper understanding of the play and was hugely entertaining.
