Event Description

Once upon a Time, cruel fate decreed that a family should be torn asunder in a violent shipwreck. The mother lost to the waves, the father and one twin and his bondsman one way, and the other twin and his bondsman another…

Years later, in search of their lost family, Antipholus, and his bondsman, Dromio, arrive in the port of 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 everybody knows their names!

Pack your bubbly, chairs, and picnics and witness the comical confusion and chaotic capers of Shakespeare’s hilarious masterpiece!

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 travelling 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.”
