For Summer 2017, Rain or Shine bring you Shakespeare’s cross-gartered and hilarious cross-dressing comedy…
“What country, friends, is this?”
Have you ever found yourself in a strange place, surrounded by strange people, taking extraordinary measures to find your way? That’s the situation Viola finds herself in when, shipwrecked and separated from her brother, she sets foot upon Illyria’s sandy shore. Lost and alone, she disguises herself as a man and sets forth. Before long, chaos ensues as mistaken identity, love, pride and alcohol set a host of much loved characters on a series of hilarious adventures. Hopeless romantics, drunken knights, a pompous steward and fools galore abound in one of Mr. William Shakespeare’s most celebrated comedies.
“If music be the food of love, play on!”
Sure to delight family audiences from age 6 to 96, this is an ideal choice for an outdoor theatrical event.
Adults £11.50 (£13.50 on the door)
Children £5 (£6 on the door)
