Cheap Twelfth Night tickets at the Olivier Theatre
A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land.
So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love. The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia's upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness.
Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.
Simon Godwin (Man and Superman, The Beaux' Stratagem) directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig as a transformed Malvolia.

Olivier Theatre, National
The Olivier Theatre is, along with the the Cottesloe and Lyttelton theatres, one of the three main venues that comprise London’s National Theatre complex. It’s situated at the NT, on the South Bank off Waterloo Bridge, close to Waterloo rail and tube stations.
Built in 1976, this 1160 seat venue is named after legendary actor/director Laurence Olivier, who was also the NT’s first artistic director following its formation in the early Sixties.
The first production at the Olivier Theatre was Elizabethan drama Tamburlaine the Great, which opened on 4 October 1976. Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are Don Quixote, Guys and Dolls, Oklahoma!, Anything Goes and All’s Well That Ends Well.
The National Theatre company was formed in 1963 and worked out of its original base at the Old Vic Theatre for its first 13 years. Work on the National Theatre complex had been approved in the early Sixties. By 1976 the complex was a reality and the National Theatre company moved in.
The Olivier Theatre has the largest auditorium of the three theatres inside the National Theatre complex. The theatre features an open stage with a fan-shaped seating area. The design is based on the ancient Greek theatre at Epidaurus.
The theatre’s design ensures that the audience has a completely unobstructed view, and that all audience members are fully visible to the actors from centre stage.
Designed in the 1970s, the drum revolve and a multiple flying system were originally very controversial and took ten years to commission, but have proved to be both functional and productive, allowing for quick and fluid set changes.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Olivier Theatre make it the perfect place to see innovative new work, unique revivals and traditional theatre. Recent successes include The Cherry Orchard, Frankenstein, The Count of Monte Cristo, Antigone and London Road.
Whatever you decide to see at the Olivier Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
