Well-loved purveyor of enthralling outdoor theatre, the Australian Shakespeare Company (ASC) returns this summer with a new production of one of Shakespeare’s greatest comic masterpieces, Twelfth Night.

From 20 December 2016 – 4 March 2017, Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens will be treated to evenings full of larger-than-life characters interacting with picnicking audiences as they play out a tale of riotous festivities, unrequited love, cross-dressing, misguided advances and all manners of adventure. Tickets are on sale now from shakespeareaustralia.com.au.
