The Twelfth Night Trilogy


  • Category: Theatre

Full Description

‘I love John’s quirky sense of humour – his scripts never fail to make me laugh,’

David Morrissey – Actor

The Twelfth Night Trilogy brings you three plays in one. Inspired by Shakespeare , three characters who would be recognisable in Elizabethan England as they are today.

Twelfth Night is one of the Bards most modern comedies, ending as it does with not one workable relationship, there are twins in disguises, disguised intentions, mistaken identities, misdirections and missed desires. If you thought that dealing with they, them, was sometimes confusing then welcome to the Bards world of boys dressed as girls who are dressed as men, of drunken buffons, of pompous asses and the most openly gay characters in any Shakepseare play (not to mention some of the most closeted). The Twelfth Night Trilogy takes three characters Antonio, Toby Belch and Viola and imagines their post play lives, making them relevant to today and bringing new life to the Bard’s best characters..

‘Hidden gem’ Fiction Romance – Brighton Fringe 2021

‘It’s wonderfully richly written, covering almost a lifetime’s experience of the outsider in the tale, but bursting with love and sex and anger and forgiveness.’ – Mark Bunyan

‘Fiction Romance was not just a play, it’s an emotional rollercoaster’ Sacha Cooper

‘Recalling Genet’s pristine classical French prose describing sex or producing a ‘pearl’ fart. If Antonio can speak as he does in Twelfth Night, Knowles deduces there’s fathoms to his expressiveness and learning, as well as natural intelligence. Which is what we get here. It’s a beautifully redemptive tale’. Fringe Review – ‘Hidden Gem’

‘I love your script’ Tim McMullan – The National Theatre

‘Beautifully… impeccably and intricately structured. Poignant and resonant’. Emily Carding
