The Manchester Shakespeare Company presents Twelve Nights - Falinge
Shakespeare at St Edmund's
The Manchester Shakespeare Company presents Twelve Nights or WTF?, an adaptation of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. The work tells the story of Horsina Pilton, a rich, succesful businesswoman, desperately lovesick for the dishy film actor Oliver De Tabloids who is holed up in the penthounse suite of the Mancia Pilton Hotel, jealously guarded by his overbearing PA Malcom Fabrese.
Meanwhile, Oliver's boozy Aunt Tia Maria is also trying to get access to Oliver so she can marry him off to her air-headed Valley Girl protege Andrea Palemuscht.
The arrival of illegal immigrant twins Sebastian and Viola only adds to the complications as Horsina sends Sebastian (disguised as Sebrina) to woo Oliver on her behalf, with hilarious and distrubing consequenses for everybody.
Set in the immigrant-free world of the Former United Kingdom (FUK) 12 nights is a mad musical exploration of love, loss and lunacy. Will love conquer all?
