The Comedy of Errors

Shakespeare’s funniest, knockabout comedy features two pairs of identical twins separated at birth, living in two different countries. That’s just the start of non-stop, madcap adventures when one twin comes across the wife of the other, who claims he is her husband! Jealousy and confusion ensue in trumps.

Meantime the other set of twins, who are servants, mistake their masters… Everyone thinks everyone else has gone mad. Shakespeare has created a perfect recipe for fun and laughter, to be enjoyed with your picnics on the Highdown greensward. Children will love this show as much as adults.
