The Comedy of Errors
by William Shakespeare
Set on the party island of Ephasus, this is the story of two sets of twins separated at birth and the hilarious results when they, unbeknown to each other or the folk around them, turn up in the same town.
One of Shakespeare’s earliest comedies the TCOE is fast paced; combining elements of mistaken identity, financial shenanigans, infidelity and slapstick humour which would not be out of place in any modern farce.
For an unforgettable evening full of laughs and high jinx, come to The Comedy of Errors at Crowland Abbey on the 28th June at 19:30.
Tickets are £10 and available from Bridge Hardware, Crowland and the Abbey itself.
