Sixth Form lead on trip to the Globe Theatre
This is not the first time I’ve been lucky enough to go the Globe......
Maria – who is studying BTEC Level 3 Acting in Lower Sixth said – ‘This is not the first time I’ve been lucky enough to go the Globe – but there is always something magical about seeing a production here and it was nice to go with some of the Year 10’s and to discuss what they thought of the play on the way home I’m becoming more familiar with understanding the plays now – the more I see’.
An outrageous high comedy ensues as the pangs of unrequited love affect the unforgettable characters of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. While the lovelorn Duke Orsino plots to win the heart of the mourning Olivia, an alliance of servants and hangers-on scheme against the high-handedness of Olivia’s steward, the pompous Malvolio. When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola, who has disguised herself as a young man under the name Cesario, to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet and hilarious chain of events follows.
