It's Shakespeare, Pig Iron style. Welcome to an uproarious world of drunkards and wine-drenched parties, depressive noblemen and dueling musicians, idiots and veteran jesters, religious zealots and erotic misunderstandings, all set to a live gypsy-rock score. Pig Iron Theatre Company uses its highly physical performance style to embrace one of Shakespeare's most wicked comedies and exploits Shakespeare's wordplay with an immediacy that is alive and unpredictable.
Pig Iron brings a cast of familiar faces including the return of Birgit Huppuch (Isabella, FringeArts festival, 2008). With music by Rosie Langabeer (Cankerblossom, FringeArts festival, 2010).
Twelfth Night, or What You Will received support from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage in 2009.
