Twelfth Night (2007)

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Bernard Doyle
Performed in Airfield Gardens, Dundrum June 2007

Outdoors under the trees and soft summer air, the group returned to Airfield House and Gardens for this production of Shakespeare's beloved play. The last time it was performed by Balally Players was also in Airfield and other venues in 2002.



This midsummer, the gardens of Airfield_House in Dundrum were once again the stage for our summer Shakespearian production directed by Bernard Doyle. The play chosen this year was 'Twelfth Night' and it was staged in Airfield from Wednesday 27 to Saturday 30 June.


Performance in Airfield


Twelfth Night, or What You Will, is a comedy named after the Twelfth Night holiday of the Christmas season. Written in 1600 or 1601, the play is set in the kingdom of Illyria. Like so many of Shakespeare's comedies, this one centres on mistaken identity. There are many plots and subplots, but in the end, they are all woven together with the Bard's immense skill to create a single tapestry that's great fun to play and to watch.
