'Twelfth Night'


Temperance Hall


31st January - 2nd February 1923


A. G. Revill & C. B. Sherwin

"A triumph of stagecraft"
Review from Derby Mercury

Our first production of 'Twelfth Night' came in February 1923 at the Temperance Hall in Derby.  This was acclaimed for its attention to traditional detail both in terms of the set and costumes but also in the playing style, the action moving continuously from scene to scene as would have been the style in Shakespeare's time.

Following the three initial performances the show was then presented again in the April of 1923 for five performances in aid of the Derby War Memorial Fund.
