Shakespeare’s ‘The Comedy of Errors’

12th July 2024

Shakespeare’s ‘The Comedy of Errors’

As part of our 2024 Summer of Outdoor Theatre programme, we are delighted to welcome to Stubbings the talented HandleBards with their performance of Shakespeare’s ‘The Comedy of Errors’.

Pedalling from venue to venue with all of their set, props and costumes on the back of their bikes, the HandleBards are a four-strong troupe of actors who spend summers bringing environmentally sustainable Shakespeare to venues across the UK.

Join them at Stubbings for their hilarious production of Shakespeare’s ‘The Comedy of Errors’ like you’ve never seen before. When two sets of estranged twins are brought together on the same island, this classic comedy takes hold, with mistaken identity, music and manic costume changes a plenty.
