The Swivel Theatre Company: Classic theatre … with a twist
Twelfth Night, by the Swivel Theatre Company, closes tonight (Sunday 18 March). I have saved the best until last. Here is our Malvolio, cross-gartered and wearing his yellow stockings.

Act 3, Scene 4
In her garden, Olivia consults with Maria on how best to woo Cesario, who has agreed to come back yet again. She asks Maria to bring Malvolio to advise her, as his melancholy mood will better match her own. Maria replies that Malvolio seems to have gone mad, for he does nothing but smile. Malvolio enters wearing yellow cross-gartered stockings, smiling idiotically. Olivia scolds him for this behaviour. However, he continues grinning and alluding to the letter which he believes she sent. Olivia concludes that Malvolio has fallen into “midsummer madness”.
