Comedy of Errors
Tuesday, 16 July- 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm£8.00 – £10.00
SE Theatre Company travel from Shakespeare’s hometown in Stratford-upon-Avon to bring one the Bard’s earliest and most farcical comedies to The Place Theatre.
The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins who were accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, travel to Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their twin brothers, Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus.
What follows is a series of wild, hilarious mishaps based on mistaken identities that lead to near-seductions, arrests, false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and even demonic possession.
This production combines the comical nature of the text, with immersive live music and the warmth of a Summer evening to bring to the stage a Shakespearean production unlike any other.
“Please note this is an outdoor production. Despite the sitting provided at the venue, we welcome our audiences to bring their own chairs or, if they wish to, a picnic blanket!”
