The Globe's production of Twelfth Night at The Apollo Theatre, starring Stephen Fry and Mark Rylance.
Two time winner of Olivier and Tony Awards actor, playwright and director Mark Rylance will reprise his widely celebrated performance of Olivia in Twelth Night opposite Stephen Fry playing Malvolio.
Mark Rylance was the first Artistic Director of Shakespeare's Globe in London, from 1995 to 2005 and is back at the Globe Theatre this summer for the first time as part of the Globe's "The Play's The Thing" Season which is transferring to the Apollo Theatre home to his acclaimed performance in Jerusalem.
In the household of Olivia, two campaigns are being quietly waged – one by the lovesick lord Orsino against the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the high-handedness of her steward, the pompous Malvolio. When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet chain of events follows.
