EIF 2016 - Shake, a Shakespearean Twelfth Night Remake

On the menu today, a matinee performance of Shake, a retelling of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. The performance was in French, with English super-titles, and the jury found the exercise somewhat exhausting to watch. Director Dan Jemmett also sat down with us after the show at the Lyceum bar to chat a bit about the production. We agreed that the plot as complicated but intriguing once you sink your teeth into the action, and that the actor playing Malvolio and Duke Orsino was amazing (it was the same guy in two parts! We were stunned when we realised).
