Clare May Week Play
The season’s shindigs have come to an end and the morning’s hangovers have just begun to settle in. As Sir Toby and co. stare down the dying of the light with a drunken glint in their confused orbs, a ‘very midsummer madness’ takes over Illyria. Love, confused gender and identity all crossed with a lot of very silly behaviour take place in this riotous production of ‘Twelfth Night’ set the morning-after-the-night-before, and performed in Clare College’s most beauteous gardens.
The annual Clare College Shakespeare play happens during May Week every year in Clare’s gorgeous Fellows’ Garden – renowned to be one of the most beautiful in Cambridge.
Plays in recent years have been ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and ‘Richard II’, which were received very well by large audiences. This year we’re delighted to be putting on a production of ‘Twelfth Night’!
