Wotton Community PARC, New Road, Wotton-under-Edge GL12 8JW
Dig out your hampers and load up your picnic bags as Rain or Shine Theatre Company invites you to witness the comical confusion and chaotic capers of Shakespeare’s hilarious masterpiece!
Once upon a time… two sets of identical twin babies and their parents survived a shipwreck. Fate, however, decreed that the family should be split up, the mother one way, the father and one of each twin another, and the final pair a third way…
Twenty-Five years later, in search of their long-lost family, two of the twins, Antipholus of Syracuse and his manservant, Dromio, arrive in Ephesus, a city reputedly full of rogues, cheats, and sorcerers.
Although this is their first visit merchants greet them as acquaintances, women pursue them as lovers, and Ephesus appears to be a place where everybody knows their names!
Audience Comments: “Rain or Shine at their maniacal best yet again. Another master class in multiple role-playing, expert timing, rapid costume changes, and all played out on their trademark minimal set. “Vintage Rain or Shine that’s utterly hilarious sending everyone contentedly away into the night.” “We just love going to see traveling shows and this company has to be one of the best. Great acting, super friendly, lots of humour, and a fascinating trip back in time. Many congratulations.”
Please bring your own picnic and seating.
