Fry joins Rylance for Twelfth Night

Published 15 February 2012

Presenter, actor and Twitter hero Stephen Fry will be exercising his thespianic muscles once more this summer when he joins Mark Rylance at Shakespeare’s Globe.

The QI host will don the yellow stockings of Malvolio in a production of Twelfth Night that will also star Samuel Barnett and Johnny Flynn.

The revival of the much-acclaimed production of 2002 will also welcome original performers Liam Brennan and Peter Hamilton Dyer back to play the roles of Orsino and Feste, while Globe regular Colin Hurley will play Sir Toby Belch.

Rarely seen on the London stage, Fry is better known for his screen work which includes Sherlock Holmes II, Gosford Park, Wilde, The Borrowers, Blackadder and Jeeves And Wooster, in which, as in Twelfth Night, he famously played a member of the serving staff.

Twelfth Night, which plays at Shakespeare’s Globe between 22 September and 14 October, is part of a packed season at the Bankside venue, which also includes the Globe To Globe season which sees 37 international companies performing every one of Shakespeare’s plays in a different language.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

Theatres are currently closed until 3 August. Some shows have cancelled or rescheduled performances beyond this date, please check with individual shows for details.
