By William Shakespeare
Thurs 8 – Sat 10 Nov
- Presented at Belgrade Main stage
- Tickets: £7.75 - £19.25 (Concessions: £7.50 - £17.25)
One of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies of love and confusion, Twelfth Night tells a twisted tale of mistaken identity, transformation and deception. With a man playing a girl disguised as a boy, illusion and reality are almost indistinguishable on Propeller’s island of Illyria.
Dark and delightful, the play questions what happens when you fall in love with the wrong person, and the answer is both beautiful and bittersweet.
Back at the Belgrade after the huge success Henry V and The Winter’s Tale earlier this year, Propeller is an internationally renowned all-male Shakespeare theatre company. Led by Director Edward Hall, they combine a rigorous approach to the text with wild enthusiasm and an exciting, physical aesthetic.
Approximate running time: 2 hours 50 mins including a 20 min interval.

“The all-male cast only adds to the layers of sexual disorientation. The company uses music beautifully throughout the production to create a magical atmosphere.”
— Financial Times
“Two of Shakespeare’s enduring comedies receive fresh, thrilling reinvigoration in screamingly funny, surprisingly affecting productions.”
— Newsday, New York
“As directed by Edward Hall, the Propeller Company specializes in knuckle-duster Shakespeare that digs for the harshness beneath the lyricism. Funny, antic, bawdy: the productions are all these expected things. But they also make sure that the chuckles stick in your throat. The poetry may still be pretty; the comedy definitely is not.”
— New York Times
“Propeller’s talents are at full, impressive stretch.”
— The Observer
