 Director Jonathan Munby


“If music be the food of love, play on…” 

A shipwreck separates twins who begin new lives unknowingly in the same land. Disguise and deception,unrequited love and confusion set the scene for this hilarious comedy of mischief, madness and infatuation.

Fusing vivid story-telling with Director Jonathan Munby’s highly distinctive visual style, Twelfth Night includes some of Shakespeare’s best loved characters, including Malvolio, Viola, Sir Toby Belch and Orsino. Twelfth Night was recently voted one of the Nation's Top Ten plays in English Touring Theatre's My Favourite Play poll.

Jonathan Munby was nominated for an Outstanding Director (Helen Hayes Award) for The Dog In The Manger for the Shakespeare Theater Company, in Washington DC and has won public and critical acclaim for his productions of Sondheim’s Company in Sheffield and Julius Caesar for the Chicago Shakespeare Theater.

English Touring Theatre and the award-winning Sheffield Theatres are reunited following their critically acclaimed joint production of Brian Friel’s Translations in the Spring.
