The Play

I, Malvolio is renowned actor, writer and director Tim Crouch's one-man interpretation of Twelfth Night, as told by Shakespeare’s much maligned steward, Malvolio. A story of lost dignity, prudery, practical jokes and bullying, this act of storytelling alchemy draws us deep into the madness of Shakespeare’s classic comedy. Following the international success of Tim Crouch’s previous works I, Caliban, I, Peaseblossom and I, BanquoI, Malvolio is a hilarious, and often unsettling, rant from a man “notoriously wronged.”
