Open air theatre Sun 11 Aug at 7pm

This years open air theatre event at Prince Albert Gardens taking place on Sunday, August 11th again at the earlier time of 7pm.
Swanage Lifeboat and The Rain or Shine Theatre Company invite you to witness the comical confusion and chaotic capers of Shakespeare's hilarious masterpiece of mistaken identity that is ..... THE COMEDY OF ERRORS. Combining adventure, human folly, farce, romance and suspense, the clever and original plot shows a high degree of genius and creativity and is suitable for adults and children alike.

Once upon a time....two sets of identical twin babies and their parents survived a shipwreck. Fate, however, decreed that the family should be spilt up, the mother one way, and 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, woman pursue them as lovers, and Ephesus appears to be a place where everybody knows their names!
