“I’ll be revenged on the whole pack of you.”
Premiered in 2010, this award winning show by Tim Crouch has toured the world – from Sydney to Shanghai to New York. Now it’s Colchester’s chance to meet the man “notoriously wronged.”
I, Malvolio is a charged, hilarious and sometimes unsettling rant from a man adrift in front of a cruel audience. Part abject clown, part theatre-hating disciplinarian, Malvolio asks his audience to explore the pleasure we take in other people’s suffering.
Tim Crouch re-imagines Twelfth Night in this brilliant one-man show that unlocks Shakespeare’s play and tells a timeless story of bullying, prudery and practical jokes. This is a show for anyone who has ever been told off, called a name or fallen in love with the wrong person.
