Illyria Theatre Company present “A Comedy of Errors” , Shakespeare’s earliest, shortest and most farcical comedy.
Two sets of identical twins, separated at birth unknowingly end up in the same city. More and more people are sucked into a vortex of mistaken identity including an Officer who is paid per arrest, a Goldsmith who hasn’t been paid at all, a delayed Merchant, an irate Courtesan and a mad Exorcist. To say nothing of a wife who sometimes feels her husband is two different personalities, and a poor immigrant who is arrested for being the wrong nationality.
Illyria are one of the oldest open-air touring theatre company’s.
Bring your own seating and a picnic. The gates will be open from 6:00 pm.
Coffee, soft drinks, cakes and ice cream may be on sale from 6pm and during the interval.
