Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night embodies the carnivalesque.

Appearance and identity become unreliable, and love, gender, and social position are unstable until the world is righted at the end of the play.

Join Graham Atkin and Leo Hall, from the University of Chester, as they discuss Shakespeare’s most popular comedy and ask ‘who is the Lord of Misrule in the Twelfth Night?’

 

Lunchtime Lectures is a collaboration between Storyhouse and the University of Chester, providing an open platform for debate on a range of topics and fascinating subjects.

They take place on the third Tuesday of each month.
