Comedian Seann Walsh takes on the coveted role of Malvolio...

The show is the second Stafford Festival Shakespeare production to be performed in the Gatehouse theatre, rather than outdoors in the grounds of the town’s castle. 

As with many Shakespeare comedies, Twelfth Night is based on a case of mistaken identity, with Viola disguising herself as a boy and causing all manner of awkward romantic shenanigans. However, the play’s continuing popularity can mainly be attributed to its hilarious (well, by Shakespeare’s standards anyway) comic sub-plot, in which the merciless Sir Toby Belch and his foolish companion, Sir Andrew Aguecheek, seek to humiliate the pompous Malvolio (and achieve their aim in fine style)... 
As the show’s subtitle makes clear, this particular version of Twelfth Night comes complete with a Cornish theme. 

Natalie Anderson and the Bafta-winning Molly Windsor also star.
