I, Malvolio by Tim Crouch
Tim Crouch is a multi-award winning playwright and performer living in the UK. His work has played in theatres and at festivals around the world.
I, Malvolio is the fourth of Tim Crouch’s solo Shakespeare plays for young audiences. The series, commissioned by Brighton Festival, started in 2003 with I, Caliban. I, Peaseblossom and I, Banquo followed, with subsequent runs in London, Dublin and New York City. He has since written I, Cinna (The Poet) for the RSC which was filmed and live-streamed to every school in the UK.
I, Malvolio is a charged and often unsettling rant from a man “notoriously wronged”, a man adrift in front of cruel spectators. It’s Twelfth Night told from the loser’s perspective. In a story of lost dignity, prudery, practical jokes and bullying, Malvolio draws his audience into the madness of Shakespeare’s play and makes it his own.The Wolf and Peter Information
