“Bursting at the seams with wit, intelligence and energy. Do yourself a favour this summer and see this production.” – East Anglian Daily Times
“A blast, a treat, a serious kind of joy.” – Libby Purves, TheatreCat
“A hugely entertaining performance in a beautiful location and something the whole family will enjoy” – Chloé Baines for Ipswich Waterfront
This year, Red Rose Chain’s much loved annual summer Shakespeare event is happening with a difference – Theatre in the Forest at Homeis coming to you! Join us for a special live streamed performance of Twelfth Night for one night only on the 1st August.
Despite all the current difficulties, we have assembled a cast of Theatre in the Forest legends to entertain you at home with our brand new production of Shakespeare’s best loved comedy.
Shipwrecked on the Island of Illyria, twins Viola and Sebastian are separated, each assuming that the other is drowned. When Viola disguises herself as a boy to work for the Count Orsino, a hilarious comedy of mistaken identity and misunderstandings unfolds, full of passion, revenge and yellow stockings!
Our Live stream event will bring you all the fun of a night in the woods, where you will be warmly welcomed by the whole team and entertained as the sun goes down and the stars appear. We don’t want to give too much away, but there will be everything you love from a Theatre in the Forest show – toe tapping music, laugh out loud comedy and dancing to get you up on your feet!
So set up your laptop and a picnic, gather your family together for a garden party and settle in for a magical evening of entertainment.
Tickets are priced from £10 – £100 and grants one device access to this totally unique experience on the 1st August. While all tickets offer the same view, we’re asking audiences to give what they can, especially if there are a number of you watching. Your ticket money will help secure Red Rose Chain’s future and support us to continue our vital work in our community with disadvantaged and disabled young people and adults. There is also the option to add a further donation on top of this for those who are able to give a little more.
We also have digital programmes to purchase for just £2!
Ticket holders will be emailed 24 hours prior to the event with a link to the live stream and their programme if purchased.
Our live event is over, but you can still get a link to see the show!

Your support will be helping us to continue to deliver our community programme to some of the most disadvantaged and overlooked individuals and groups in the community – giving them a voice, positive outlet and sense of well-being.
£10 ticket for Theatre in the Forest at Home fundraiser – Thank you!
A £10 donation pays for a member of our community company ‘ACT’ to have a shared lunch and participate in a drama workshop. This small opportunity could spark a lifelong friendship or be the confidence boost someone desperately needs.
£25 ticket for Theatre in the Forest at Home fundraiser – Amazing!
£25 covers the cost for a standard theatre ticket - providing an experience that a young refugee or a young person with a disability might not have access to otherwise. One trip to the theatre could completely change the way a person sees the world!
£50 ticket for Theatre in the Forest at Home fundraiser – Yippee!
£50 pays for one young person to take part in the Chainer’s Youth Theatre for a term and take part in our amazing volunteering programme. We know from experience that it isn’t just a bit of extra-curricular fun; our youth projects confront fears and tackle issues in a safe, supportive environment equipping young people with the life skills to cope with the emotional rollercoaster of adolescence.
£100 ticket for Theatre in the Forest fundraiser – Awesome!
£100 could pay for a family to participate in our under 5s storytelling project. This is an incredible project that allows the opportunity for pre-schoolers and their families to share an immersive and engaging experience, strengthening trusting relationships, building communication skills and igniting the imagination – all so critical for early child development!
Can you donate more than that for your ticket? Phenomenal!
Wow! We absolutely depend on generous people like you! We’re really proud of the community groups we’ve established but we know there’s still so much more left to do. With your amazing support our next step will be to establish two brand new theatre groups for young people under 12 who have learning difficulties and disabilities. The more support we recieve the more lives we can transform!Please pledge your amount here:

Each year, we welcome 10,000 audience members to our woodland auditorium throughout July/August making it the largest outdoor family theatre event in the region.
