Bring a chair and a picnic and spend a glorious summer’s evening at Conwy Castle watching this funny, magical and fast-paced production of one of Shakespeare’s best comedies. Performed in the open air, by an all male cast with Elizabethan costumes, music and dance.
The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, the UK’s premier all male theatre company, invite you to join them this summer for Shakespeare’s most hilarious farce, The Comedy of Errors.
This fantastical comedy follows two pairs of identical twins, Antipholus of Syracuse and Antipholus of Ephesus, and their servants, both named Dromio. When they were babies, the twins and their parents were separated in a shipwreck; now, years later, as one half of the twins search for the other they unwittingly find themselves in the same city on the same day.
A magical and comically entwined tale of mistaken identity follows merchants, masters, parents, servants and a long-suffering wife as it plays itself out over the course of one hectic day. This riotous roller-coaster of a comedy will keep you guessing and laughing until its joyous conclusion.
Audience welcome to bring low backed seating & rugs. Picnics are allowed, but no glassware or picnic tables please.
The performance will go ahead in most weathers.
