I, Malvolio re-imagines Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night from the point of view of its most notoriously abused steward.  It’s 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.

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.  Tim Crouch is an Obie-award winning performer, playwright and director. His plays include An Oak Tree, The Author, Adler & Gibb and Beginners.


‘…masterful… Crouch is a performer at the top of his game, sharing a text that plays as much with intelligence as slapstick.’ ***** The Guardian

“Immaculate, moving, funny, wise.” **** The Times

‘Crouch’s fresh, funny, poignant and thought-provoking I, Malvolio is his finest work to-date.’  **** The Telegrapgh
