‘The company is brilliant. Girvan engages her actors and builds a dynamic and bubbly show… An exciting and appealing production, it's safe to say that this Twelfth Night is certainly bound to bewitch audiences that span all ages.’

Broadway World, 5/5

‘Fuelled with incredible energy and creating a colourful scenario, Twelfth Night at Southwark Playhouse is one of those Shakespearean productions that stands out for its vibe and originality.’

The Upcoming 5/5

‘this production provides enough cheerful humour and scrappy exuberance to create a joyous evening’s entertainment.’ 4/5

‘In the almost relentless happiness and joy of this version, the weeping mask of theatre is rarely worn. Fresh, modern and a tad barmy, the charm and wit of this lively production is to be enjoyed with the spirit that goes with a celebratory atmosphere.’

LondonTheatre1, 4/5

‘creatively and delightfully handled by Girvan - this is a warmly affectionate production that celebrates inclusivity and is wonderfully entertaining from beginning to end.’

LoveLondonLoveCulture, 4/5

‘director Anna Girvan making the most of the comedy to be found in the script that has been nicely condensed into 90 minutes of pure joy.’

MyTheatreMates, 4/5

‘Overall it is a wholehearted performance from all the cast and a nonsensical night at the theatre. A great way to see your first Shakespeare to make sense of the tricky language and a very good laugh.’

A Younger Theatre

‘This rendition of Twelfth Night was beautifully directed by Anna Girvan, reinvented with a festival vibe and live music on stage.’

The Live Review

‘With its majority female cast and playful tone, this show does one thing so many productions of Shakespeare fail to do: it makes the text accessible and clear.’
