Tim Crouch’s latest play, I, Malvolio premiered at the Brighton Festival on 07 May 2010, and is touring through to the end of 2011. Written and performed by Tim Crouch, designed by Olivier Award-winning Graeme Gilmour, it was co-commissioned by Brighton Festival and Singapore Arts Festival. Supported by BAC.
Following the huge success of I, Caliban, I, Peaseblossom and I, Banquo, I, Malvolio re-imagines Twelfth Night from the point of view of Shakespeare’s pent-up steward. I, Malvolio is a hilarious and often unsettling rant from a man ‘notoriously wronged’.
A story of lost dignity, prudery, practical jokes and bullying, this one-man act of storytelling alchemy draws us deep into the madness of Shakespeare’s classic comedy.
‘Look at you. Sitting there with your bellies full of pop and pickled herring. Laughing at me. Go on. Laugh at the funny man. Laugh. Make the funny man cry.’
‘One of the smartest artists making theatre in Britain now.‘
