Group member Lisa Bushell says of the modern take on the classic story: "Illyria 2019 is the biggest event in the summer festival calendar. It was founded by multi-millionaire Orsino and takes place on his estate every year. He runs it with his best friends. They are a close knit team.

"It is the perfect place to be incognito to escape a media frenzy. This is Olivia's plan. She is a social media and TV sensation and has millions of Instagram followers.

You may also want to watch:

"Recently both her father and her brother died and so Olivia has come to Illyria 2019 to lose herself amongst the thousands of festival goers so she can mourn and recover hopefully in peace.

"She has not come alone but has only brought the most important members of her entourage with her for company and support."

Performances start at 7.30pm each night and a bar will be available. Take your own blankets and chairs and use the gallery entrance.
