The Lord Chamberlain’s Men 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.

I to the world am like a drop of water
That in the ocean seeks another drop,

A magical and comically entwined tale of merchants, masters, parents, servants and a long-suffering wife plays itself out over the course of one hectic day. This riotous rollercoaster of a comedy will keep you guessing and laughing until its joyous conclusion. 

I see two husbands or my eyes deceive me.

Bring a chair and a picnic and spend a glorious summer’s evening 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 costume, music and dance, this is undoubtedly one of the hottest tickets of the summer.

Book early to avoid missing out.
