I, Malvolio

I, Malvolio
07 December 2023
The Globe Theatre
4.0 out of 5.0 stars

Another visit to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at the Globe Theatre, this time to see I, Malvolio.

Sprung right out of Twelfth Night, the famously mistreated character admonishes the audience from the get go, calling out their hunger for sensational entertainment with no regard for the suffering of the characters on stage.

Expertly blending audience interactions within a monologue, repeatedly breaking the fourth wall, and even appointing audience members to help on stage, it’s a riotous performance. Funny and thought provoking in equal measure, calling out Shakespeare’s worst cruelties and weirdest quotes while continually involving the audience in the action, it’s an absolute must see for any Shakespeare fan!
