From: £16.00

The HandleBards, pedal from venue to venue with all their set, props and costume in tow, performing environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the UK. 
Join them for a bicycle-powered production of Twelfth Night. With music, mayhem and more costume changes than you can shake a spear at, expect the HandleBards usual irreverent, charming and hilarious style to come bursting onto the stage at Norwich Theatre 
And what’s the play about? Well – Duke Orsino is in love with Lady Olivia, but she won’t have anything to do with suitors. Viola is shipwrecked and believes her twin brother Sebastian to be dead. Meanwhile, a bunch of Olivia’s servants plot to make a fool out of her pompous butler, Malvolio. There’s drunkenness, frivolity and cross-dressing a plenty.
