Shakespeare at Knowsley Hall

Price: From: £15.00

Thursday 10th August 2017 – Come and see an open air theatre performance of William Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors.

This summer The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, in their thirteenth successful year, are touring Shakespeare’s most hilarious farce The Comedy of Errors – a riotous rollercoaster of a comedy that will keep you guessing and laughing until its joyous conclusion.

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.

Bring your own low backed seating or rugs and spend a glorious summer’s evening watching this funny, moving and fast-paced production of one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies. Picnics are encouraged however naked flames are not permitted. You will be able to purchase liquid refreshments at the event.

Performed in the open air, on the back lawn of the Hall’s grounds, by an all male cast with Elizabethan costume, music and dance. This is an outdoor event and will take place whatever the weather. This is undoubtedly one of the hottest tickets of the summer!
