A Theatre review of ‘Twelfth Night’ by Propeller

On the 13th of November 2012 my school drama group went to watch ‘Twelfth Night’ by Propeller in the Yvonne Arnaud in Guildford. The plot of   ‘Twelfth Night’ is that at the start of the play Propeller started when the play with a ship wreck that separates Viola and Sebastian. Then after that we see that Count Orsino proposes to Lady Olivia but she is in mourning and that she does not want to marry anyone for 7 years. Then there is a love triangle as Count Orsino loves Lady Olivia, Viola/ Cesario loves Count Orsino and Lady Olivia loves Cesario. Then we meet Malvolio, Sir Toby Belch, Maria and Sir Andrew Aguecheek. Sir Toby Belch and Andrew Aguecheek were spending Andrew Aguecheeks money on getting drunk.

Little did he know it was Maria who wrote the letter and that Lady Olivia hated the colour yellow and she also hated cross garters. He was completely humiliated. Then Lady Olivia was trying to do everything she could to try and get Cesario. But then Sebastian turns up and Sir Toby Belch challenges Sebastian and Andrew Aguecheek to a boxing fight over Lady Olivia. Sebastian wins and then Lady Olivia then asks Sebastian to marry her thinking that its Cesario.
