What You Will is a step towards a virtual theatrical promenade, a fresh approach to online performance.
This is not a re-telling of the story of Twelfth Night. This is an exploration of mood, of motif and humanity: a collage of mind states of the play’s characters, shipwrecked in their own lives.
Olivia is grieving
Viola is walking
Malvolio is maddening
Belch is waking
Andrew is shadow boxing
Maria Ambition is pretending
Maria Opportunism is dancing
Orsino is transforming
Feste is observing
Every visitor may choose which character to visit with, and visit with all characters, as many times as they wish.
Come & explore a corner of the world-country of Illyria!
Nine players devised their timeline in isolation, and performed with audience members sitting or walking with them, while simultaneously live-streaming to audiences around the world.
Filmed in Japan, India, Europe, the UK, the USA, & Canada, visit and observe fragments of their life’s story, music & song their only guide, in a time out of joint.
Take a different path through Illyria, as many times as you like.
Come & turn the mundane into the extraordinary.

Brilliant individual performances. I wanted to visit with everyone. Coming back for the shows later today, and looking forward to the website version!”Viewer from London
We needed to be active! Avant-garde? Interesting experiences…Viewer from Tokyo
I had watched in one room; my wife in another. Afterwards we compared notes: which of us saw which bits? The involvement and excitement continued into our own world – which is exactly what theatre should be doing. We found it breathtaking.Viewer from Wales
