Booking information

Event details

Bury Theatre Workshop, a Community Theatre Company, are performing William Shakespeare’s 'Twelfth Night'.

An annual open air Shakespeare 'Picnic in the Park' event in the Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds.

Shipwrecked off the coast of Illyria twins Viola and Sebastian have been separated and believe each other dead. Disguises, intrigue, and romantic entanglements ensue as Viola, disguised as a boy falls for her new master, Orsino, whilst his love Olivia falls for Cesario (aka Viola) and servant Malvolio also hankers after his mistress Olivia. Enter Sebastian who also falls for Olivia who returns his love believing Cesario and Sebastian to be one and the same. Confusing? Well... it'll all turn out alright in the end, we hope! And what is Malvolio Wearing?!
