Twelfth Night @ Edinburgh Festival Fringe

August 22 @ 1:00 pm

|Recurring Show (See all)

An event every day that begins at 1:00pm, repeating until August 26, 2018

Twelfth Night Edinburgh Fringe

The world’s first cycling theatre company, The HandleBards, pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe.

Join our all-male troupe in Assembly Gardens at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’ like none other. In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.

And what’s the play about? Well – Duke Orsino is in love with Lady Olivia, but she won’t have anything to do with suitors. Viola is shipwrecked and believes her twin brother Sebastian to be dead. Meanwhile, a bunch of Olivia’s servants plot to make a fool out of her pompous Butler, Malvolio. There’s drunkenness, frivolity and cross-dressing a plenty.
