Don’t miss Sport for Jove’s Twelfth Night at Riverside, 5 – 8 March. Directed by Damien Ryan, this acclaimed and brilliantly staged production takes us right to the waters edge, set in the golden sunlight of a 1960′s summer holiday by the sea. Shakespeare’s deliriously romantic classic is a potent cocktail of songs, sun and sand, melancholy and madness, comedy and chaos, a feast of love that will leave your heart lighter and your family closer. And as any family knows, on holidays, we never entirely escape our demons, indeed, we tend to pack them up with us.
