Free performance of 'Comedy of Errors' to take place in Rhyddings Park
12:47pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
A FREE performance of a family-friendly Shakespeare adaptation will be held in Rhyddings Park on Sunday, September 8.
The Comedy of Errors will be performed by Oddsocks Productions, who have been touring, every summer, for the last 23 years. This year they are performing the Bard of Avon’s shortest and most farcical play at 4pm in the ‘old playground’ area of the park.
The show is about a servant and master from Syracuse who arrive in Ephesus to search for their long-lost twin brothers. They quickly become trapped in a chain of chaotic events, including a wild wife, moody mistress, crazy jeweller and demonic doctor.
The plan will go ahead regardless of weather, so visitors are encourage to dress appropriately and to take chairs and picnics. The Stop and Rest will be open and serving food and drinks.
The performance has been funded by Community Spaces Big Lottery and Friends of Rhyddings Park, in association with the Civic Arts Centre and Hyndburn Borough Council.
