The Derbyshire company is showing its 2014 groundbreaking musical production of the Bard’s online tonight (Friday, April 24) from 7pm which is available until the end of lockdown.

A storm brings the adventurous Viola to town where she begins a new life in disguise. Working for Count Orsino, Viola, who is disguised as a man, woos Countess Olivia but the countess’s servant Malvolio also has designs on his mistress. Expect fireworks when Olivia’s uncle confronts Malvolio at a party and Malvolio ends up in prison. With a fight to the death and a white wedding, there is plenty to keep viewers interested, not to mention banging pop tunes such as Love is a Drug, Get Ready To Rumble.

All Oddsocks productions are free to watch on YouTube. Viewers are invited to make a donation to support the creatives who produced the shows.
