Handlebards - Twelfth Night
Thursday 12 July, gates open at 6pm, performance at 7pm

The world's first cycling theatre company, The Handlebards, pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespear across the globe.

Join the all-male troupe at Newark Castle for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night like none other. In usual Handlebards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.

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.
