Standout reviews for Peter Dukes in Twelfth Night

Winterson’s actor Peter Dukes is currently playing Malvolio in Twelfth Night at the Watermill Theatre. The play has been well received across the industry press, with standout reviews for Dukes throughout. We have highlighted a few of them here.

“Peter Dukes’ steward is a terrific tragi-comic creation, morphing from snooty steward to posturing wannabe squire, to pouting transvestite, channelling The Rocky Horror Show‘s Frank-N-Furter in little more than those yellow stockings.”
WhatsOnStage ★★★★

“The transformation is utterly hilarious as the conspirators hide behind a double bass case, as a substitute for the box hedge, but this humiliation drives Malvolio into madness in a stunningly powerful performance from Peter Dukes.”
British Theatre Guide “An absolute winner”

“Peter Dukes gives a shrewd performance as Malvolio and his transformation into the yellow stockings costume (or lack of) is hilarious if a tad too ridiculous.”
The Reviews Hub ★★★★

Congratulations to Peter and the entire team, and you can find out further details about Twelfth Night at The Watermill Theatre here.
