When two sets of twins and their mirror images are confused time and time again in the piratical town of Ephesus, the scene is set for farce, foolishness, frivolity and fun in a complete Comedy of Errors!
This summer, the Rain or Shine Theatre Company are planning for plenty of shine as they present what is thought to be one of Shakespeare’s first plays, The Comedy Of Errors. This exciting and hilarious tale of mistaken identity is an ideal choice for an outdoor theatrical event, bringing classical theatre into the heart of local communities.
Suitable for children (6 and up), and adults of all ages, audiences are invited to bring along low-backed seating or rugs, and a picnic to maximise their enjoyment of the al fresco performances.
The company travel across the UK from Alderney to Edinburgh, and Wales to Norfolk, visiting some of the country’s most picturesque castles, stately homes and gardens imaginable.
Rain or Shine’s cast of 9 professional actors are all set to re-create the comical confusion and chaotic capers of Shakespeare’s hilarious masterpiece of mistaken identity that is… The Comedy Of Errors.
Once upon a time… two sets of identical twin babies and their parents survived a shipwreck. Fate, however, decreed that the family should be split up, the mother one way, the father and one of each twin another, and the final pair a third way… Twenty Five years later, in search of their long lost family, two of the twins, Antipholus of Syracuse and his manservant, Dromio, arrive in Ephesus, a city reputedly full of rogues, cheats and sorcerers. Although this is their first visit merchants greet them as acquaintances, women pursue them as lovers, and Ephesus appears to be a place where everybody knows their names!
Tickets can be purchased from each venue, or online for the entire tour via rainorshine.co.uk
