Running time 2hrs 50mins
One of Shakespeare's best loved comedies of love and confusion, Twelfth Night tells a twisted tale of mistaken identity, transformation and deception. With a man playing a girl disguised as a boy, illusion and reality are almost indistinguishable on Propeller's island of Illyria.
The Taming of the Shrew
Friday 31 May 7.30pm
Saturday 1 June 2pm
Running time 2hrs 45mins
In The Taming of the Shrew two disguised, competing suitors clamour for the hand of beautiful Bianca, whilst gold digging Petruchio agrees to wed her viciously ill-tempered sister Kate sight-unseen. The difference between marrying for money, however, becomes increasingly difficult to judge.
One thing is certain - nobody does Shakespeare like Propeller.
