We are delighted to announce that we will be back this Summer to celebrate our sixth anniversary with a new production of Twelfth Night, Shakespeare’s glorious romantic comedy of mistaken identity, set in the 1920s. The production will be directed by Sioned Jones.

The evening performances will begin promptly at 7pm and will be over by approximately 9.30pm.

The matinee performance will begin promptly at 2pm and will be over by approximately 4.30pm.

Please enter via the Piazza door nearest King Street (the statue side). 

You may bring food but drink has to be purchased onsite. The Actors’ Church bar will be open from 45 minutes before the performance starts, during the interval, and for 30 minutes following the end of the performance. You will be able to purchase hot and cold drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), including Prosecco, Pimm’s and special show themed cocktails and mocktails. You will also be able to buy an assortment of sweet treats, including ice cream and Pick n’ Mix. Please note, they only accept card payments.

Event kindly sponsored by Chestertons.


Dame Judi Dench, CH, DBE, FRSA, Patron of Shakespeare in the Squares says, “I made my Broadway debut as Viola, so Twelfth Night has always been a very special play for me. I can’t imagine a more perfect choice for Shakespeare in the Squares: music, mischief, missing twins and romance – all played out on balmy summer evenings in the heart of London’s enchanted gardens and squares. I much look forward to seeing their production, and know they ‘will strive to please you every day.”
