As a member of the production team, I am not allowed to review the production, but I am posting a review below which pretty much says what I think and that I concur with wholeheartedly!
What I can say is that I went to see the play again yesterday with my mum and one of my best friends. The production was very good when it opened, but it really has evolved and developed over the course of the run, and it is now exceptional. The scene which I have illustrated above (Act II Scene V) where Malvolio finds the letter purporting to be from Olivia, although it is really from Maria, where Sir Toby, Sir Andrew, and Maria spy on Malvolio to see the effect of their "prank", is a work of genius!
Review from A Younger Theatre: Theatre through the eyes of the younger generations,
Topline Summary: Having studied the play it was a pleasure to finally see it brought to life and in such an innovative way. I must thank Swivel Theatre for making my first experience of Fringe theatre a joyous and inspiring one.
