Shakespeare 400 Chicago to Present Tim Crouch's I, MALVOLIO
by BWW News Desk - May 19, 2016

On the occasion of the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare's legacy in 2016, Chicago Shakespeare Theater (CST) welcomes one of Britain's most innovative and respected theater makers, Tim Crouch, in his inventive one-man show I, Malvolio as part of the Shakespeare 400 Chicago festival line-up. Following the international success of Crouch's I, Caliban, I, Peaseblossom and I, Banquo-a collection of plays shedding light on some of Shakespeare's more shadowy characters-I, Malvolio plucks the pompous steward out of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and unravels a hilarious and thought-provoking story of cruelty, self-hatred and revenge. Conceived, written and performed by Crouch and designed by Olivier Award-winner Graeme Gilmour, I, Malvolio is performed in the theater Upstairs at Chicago Shakespeare for five performances only, June 2-5, 2016.
