The Comedy of Errors (2020)
A different kind of summer – during summer 2020 we were only of the only open-air theatres in the UK who had a show in 2020. Just one, rather than our usual three – a brief summer of joy inbetween lockdowns.
Grosvenor Park roars back into life for one production in August with Shakespeare’s joyous, open-hearted farce. Two sets of separated twins loose on the island of Ephesus; things are bound to get complicated. And they do. Masters & servants, husbands & wives, parents & children, strangers & natives all get terribly confused in Shakespeare’s mishap strewn comedy. A rare, wildly light-hearted treat for all ages.
“Yet this my comfort: when your words are done,
My woes end likewise with the evening sun.”
A a rare treat for a theatre-starved and holiday at home summer.
Directed in style and safety by Grosvenor Park’s very own Artistic Director Alex Clifton
