Review: Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night at Norwich Cathedral

Said to be Shakespeare's greatest comedy, The Lord Chamberlain's Men did the great wordsmith proud with their performance of Twelfth Night at Norwich Cathedral.
Performing to a sell-out-crowd, the compelling cast told the story of twins washed up on the coast of Illyria just perfectly.
Full of tangled love stories and mistaken identities, it could have been 17th century England as the tale unfolded in the cloisters.
After performing the tragedy Romeo and Juliet at last year's festival, this year the all-male company presented the comedy for the two-day event, as the resident peregrine falcons swooped and cried above.
The audience were roaring at the full Elizabethan costume, traditional music and gallant singing.
