Wonderground 2016: Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night With Comedians

It's Shakespeare – but not like you've seen him before

Oddities and eccentricities abound, Wonderground has a packed programme of circus, cabaret, comedy and all manner of other good stuff. Held in the beautiful '20s Paradiso Spiegeltent, Wonderground is the perfect place to catch some world-class entertainment. Back by popular demand, Fight in the Dog presents (another) one-night-only performance of Twelfth Night. It's the twelfth day of Christmas, and in Olivia's country house the festivities are still in full swing. The booze flows and the music jumps, in spite of clean-living Malvolio's attempts to quell the party. Viola is a lonely activist on the run from the authorities, searching for her brother. Among the heaped bin bags of a prolonged festive revelry – with seasoned pisshead Toby Belch at the helm – she finds the perfect place to hide. Shakespeare's text has been abridged for a very 2016 take on this classic story of love, drink, mistaken identity and a prank taken way too far. Directed by two-times Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Liam Williams and former artistic director of Boundless Theatre, Matt Bulmer, and featuring the finest comic talent to be found upon this sceptre isle, this second one-time-only staging is bigger and better than ever before.
