Outdoor performance of Shakespeare’s “The Comedy of Errors”

Presented by Downpour Theatre Company.

Sunday 9th June 2019. Admission from 12.30pm with the performance commencing at 2.30pm.

Presented by Downpour Theatre Company. 

The Comedy of Errors is Shakespeare’s shortest yet wittiest play. Let the cast transport you to the Byzantine Empire. Hilarity ensues when Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant Dromio arrive in the hustle and bustle of Ephesus which, unbeknownst to them, is the home of their identical twins, Antipholus and Dromio of Ephesus from whom they were separated in a tragic shipwreck when they were just infants. Over the course of a single day, mistaken identities lead to unfair beatings, wrongful arrests and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness and even demonic possession. 

Downpour Theatre Company is no stranger to open air theatre, having been named in honour of a particularly damp final performance of their debut production, ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ back in 2016. This gloriously silly but clever farce, performed by a marvellously talented cast, is the perfect way to spend a summer weekend!

 £15 per adult, £10 per concession

Please bring something to sit on. No seating will be provided at the venue. No Picnics or drinks to be brought into the castle grounds – BBQ and bar will be available. This production is designed to be performed in the open-air and will continue in all safe weathers.
