Critical Acclaim

 “★★★ Malvolio, the nearest thing Shakespeare provided to an antagonist in Twelfth Night, gets a chance to air his numerous grievances against the world in Tim Crouch's comic solo… a performer kicking (lightly) against the conventions of theatrical storytelling.”

“A fast-paced 70-minute one-man show… the thought-provoking I Malvolio, takes the audience on a ride unlike any other.

"This take-off is a must-see, whether you adore Shakespeare or are just mildly curious about what all the fuss has been about for the past three centuries."

I, Malvolio is incredibly funny, utterly heart-breaking, deeply sophisticated, beguilingly simple, hugely compassionate, completely uncompromising and incredibly intricate. All at the same time.”

“A, by turns, hysterical and harrowing study of thwarted dignity, cruelty, bullying, self-hatred and metatheatrical revenge.” 

This is my third viewing of Tim Crouch’s I, Malvolio and I discover more each time..”

I, Malvolio improbably finds its own delicate sweet (and sour) spot between comedy and self-subverting analysis. "
