Details

Handsome Duke Orsino (Gary Raymond)'s attempts to woo the beautiful Olivia (Adrienne Corri) go awry when she falls in love with his intermediary. This page is in fact Viola (Joan Plowright), a girl in disguise, who herself loves Orsino. Matters are complicated by the arrival of Viola's twin brother, whom she believes to be dead. Meanwhile, the boisterous Sir Toby Belch (Ralph Richardson), effete Andrew Aguecheek (John Moffatt) and Olivia's maid, Maria (Sheila Reid), conspire with Feste (Tommy Steele), a clown, to humiliate the arrogant Malvolio (Alec Guinness), head of Olivia's household. This was originally screened in 1969 as part of the ITV Saturday Night Theatre series.
