Filter Theatre perform Twelfth Night at Bedales

Recently we were visited by Filter Theatre, they put on a wonderful and lively show that captivated the audience’s attention and provoked an enthusiastic atmosphere. It was told mainly as a rock gig in that the stage was littered with instruments and characters were continuously onstage. It was entertaining and largely enjoyable though I agree that it was hard to follow if the watcher had not before read Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. I especially enjoyed the audience interaction and adaption to suit its crowd as it meant the show explored an engagement with its audience that is not seen in many other performances. Altogether in was enjoyable, fun and active as well as pleasingly unique.
