About Twelfth Night

2022 will have you seeing double with a raucous, musical production of Twelfth Night – with a 1980s twist. Combining the wonderful storytelling of the Bard with a flavour of East London culture. Pure, unadulterated escapism, with live 80s classics, wild numbers, in lovely outdoor settings. This is not traditional outdoor Shakespeare – it is performed in non-theatrical community spaces, with community at its heart, seeking inspiration from the diverse cultures of East London. ELSF aims to bring communities together in a joyful way, giving some much-needed cultural respite in ‘safe’ outdoor settings. With lots of participatory opportunities for local communities to get involved in. A festival vibe will be encouraged with gates opening an hour before the show, pre-show workshops, including party headband making workshop and BYO picnics and the audience might even spot the bombastic residents of Illyria wandering around. The production will feature a community ensemble of local residents at our Waltham Forest venues; and is partnering with local performing arts college Big Creative and Crate to provide placements & 2 Kickstart Apprenticeships, offering invaluable behind- the-scenes insight, support with creative career options & new skills for their students. Suitable for all ages and family friendly.
