You have probably heard a lot about this phenomenal production of Twelfth Night, starring Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry, which has come “in from the cold” of the Globe Theatre for a short run at the Apollo Theatre.
We are lucky enough to have Twelfth Night theatre breaks in 2013 available for the last four Saturday night performances – 12, 19, 26 January and 02 February 2013.
In the household of Olivia (Mark Rylance), two campaigns are being quietly waged – one by the lovesick lord Orsino against the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the high-handedness of her steward, the pompous Malvolio (Stephen Fry). When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet chain of events follows.
Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with some of the subtlest poetry and most exquisite songs Shakespeare ever wrote.
We have both top price and bargain seats available for Twelfth Night, so a trip to London need not cost the earth, with breaks starting from just £82 per person and many three star packages coming in at under £100 per person (even the 4 star Quality Maitrise Hotel is under £100 with bargian tickets!).
Nearby the 3 star Bedford Hotel in Russell Square is just £100pp, otherwise there is a deal on at the Rathbone Hotel and the five star Sheraton Park Lane isn’t a bad deal at the moment.
Within eaqsy walking distance are the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotels: The 4 star Leicester Square and the 5 star Hampshir. Just round the corner on Piccadilly is the five star Le Meridien, which I love but is a little more expensive.
