A novel version of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night comes to The Dukes in Lancaster tonight.

Following a London run and an extensive UK and international tour, Filter Theatre returns to the city from February 11 to 15 during the city’s Season of Shakespeare.

Originally commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company as part of their Complete Works Festival, Filter’s interpretation of this work reaffirms their reputation as one of the most inventive theatre companies.

In this production nothing is hidden, and no two shows are the same: decisions on direction are taken on the hoof as the narrative unfolds, and each performance develops in a different way.

Performed under house lights with actors in casual clothes, the experience creates a chemistry between actor, audience and play. The production is recommended for anyone 14+, and is part of a season which sees The Dukes join forces with Lancaster University and demi-paradise productions to offer a series of event s at The Dukes and Lancaster Castle. Tickets £12.50-£19.50 (concs £2 off), matinees, all tickets £8. Box Office: 01524 598500 or www.dukes-lancaster.org
