Twelfth Night


Propeller Shakespeare


William Shakespeare; Edited by Edward Hall, Roger Warren


Oberon Books

'Whether you love Shakespeare or fear Shakespeare, these shows can speak to you. They are thrillingly fresh collisions of the contemporary and the classical.' ­-The Times

‘Propeller’s production of Twelfth Night at Hampstead Theatre is an accomplished and immaculately presented kind of Shakespeare… it really is very funny. Propeller is an all-male Shakespeare company, so while they are guaranteed a few titters from the presence of 6ft men dressed in frilly ensembles, they have stayed true to Twelfth Night’s origins as a comedy’ –Londonist

Twelfth Night is an ambiguously erotic comedy telling 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. Dark and delightful, the play questions what happens when you fall in love with the wrong person, and the answer is both beautiful and bittersweet.

This edition of Twelfth Night Includes the Propeller edit of the text, accompanied by an introduction to the text and Propeller’s process, with articles on notable features specific to the production, including the use of music, design, and costume.

Edward Hall is Artistic Director of both Propeller and the Hampstead Theatre, London, and an Associate Director of the National Theatre, the Old Vic, and the Watermill Theatre. He has directed at the National, the RSC, Chichester, and theatres worldwide: Boston, New York, Chicago, Denver, Tokyo, winning several major awards. He has also worked extensively on television and radio.

Roger Warren’s numerous publications include five editions for the Oxford Shakespeare series; he has also prepared many performing editions, especially for Propeller and the Peter Hall Company. He has collaborated with Edward Hall on eleven Shakespeare productions in the last decade.
