Tim Carroll's sell-out productions of Twelfth Night and Richard III complete their run at the Apollo Theatre today, Sunday 10 February 2013. Mark Rylance, who plays Olivia in Twelfth Night and the title role of Richard III, is joined by Stephen Fry as Malvolio in Twelfth Night.

Following a sold-out run at Shakespeare's Globe, the all-male productions transferred to the West End in November. The productions used original Shakespearean practices with on-stage seating, and are lit by over 100 candles. Designs are by Jenny Tiramani and music is by Claire van Kampen, who along with Director Tim Carroll, were the creative team behind the Globe's original 2002 version of Twelfth Night. David Plater designed the lighting for the transfer.
