I, Malvolio (Photographer: Greg Goodale)
"I, Malvolio… stands stunningly as its own piece… Crouch is a performer at the top of his game.” ★★★★★ The Guardian
Since its premiere at the Brighton Festival in 2010, British performer Tim Crouch’s one-man show I, Malvolio has toured the world to wide international acclaim.
Part of a masterful series of performances that look at Shakespeare’s plays from the perspective of minor characters – including the successful I, Caliban, I, Peaseblossom and I, Banquo – I, Malvolio re-imagines Twelfth Night from the point of view of the puritanical steward. I, Malvolio is a hilarious and often unsettling rant from a man “notoriously wronged” – a one-man show that encourages the audience to take up the role of the revellers who torment him.
A story of lost dignity, prudery, practical jokes and bullying, Crouch’s storytelling alchemy draws us deep into the madness of Shakespeare’s classic comedy.
Written and performed by Tim Crouch and designed by Olivier Award-winning Graeme Gilmour, I, Malvoliowas co-commissioned by Brighton Festival and Singapore Arts Festival, and supported by Battersea Arts Centre.
