Following a sold out Sydney season, pub theatre company Bar'd Work are back for season 2 with the famous comedy Twelfth Night in Wagga Wagga as part of the inaugural Shakesbeer Sessions . Expect fast, funny and irreverent 90-minute Shakespeare, performed in a selection of Sydney’s most iconic pub venues.

The night of short, sharp Shakespeare reimagines the classic comedy of shipwreck, mistaken identity and lust. Love triangles left and right as a stranded Viola, enters Orsino's service to woo Olivia yet falls in love with him in the process. With an array of weird and wonderful characters, one of Shakespeare's most loved comedies comes to life with a pint and pub grub. More romance than The Bachelor, better writing than Home & Away, and actors that will share a drink with the audience (before, after, and during).

“Very funny. They include crazy pop songs and people stand up and sing and dance. It’s
absolutely wild and being performed by some of the very best Shakespeare actors around.”
– Elissa Blake, Arts Tuesday on Eastside Radio
