I, Malvolio re-imagines Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night from the point of view of its most notoriously abused steward. It is a charged and often unsettling rant from a man “notoriously wronged”, a man adrift in front of cruel spectators. Part abject clown, part theatre-hating disciplinarian, Malvolio asks his audience to explore the pleasure we take in other people’s suffering.
I, Malvolio has toured the world since it opened in 2010 – from Shanghai to Sydney, from Moscow to Mumbai. This is a rare chance to see a performance by one of the UK’s most original theatre makers.
On Saturday 22 April there will be a Spotlight talk with the creators

THE GUARDIAN ★★★★
"Crouch does more than simply allow Malvolio to take his revenge on the audience that laughed at him (...) it puts the audience on the spot, luring us to a place where we think we're safe and then turning the tables to force us to consider our moral bearings, what we really think."
POSTCARDS FROM THE GODS
"I, Malvolio is incredibly funny, utterly heart-breaking, deeply sophisticated, beguilingly simple, hugely compassionate, completely uncompromising and incredibly intricate. All at the same time."
"This is a treasure, an hour to remember and to chase round its tour… Immaculate, moving, funny, wise."
The show on Saturday 22 April features a (Dutch) sign language interpreter, as well as a Spotlight Talk.
The afternoon show of 15:00 on Sunday 23 April is a relaxed performance.
