Join us on the lawn for Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors coming to Somerleyton this June
This summer, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men Theatre Company is coming to Somerleyton. The modern incarnation of Shakespeare’s original troupe of the same name perform with an all-male cast, and aim to revive the traditions of Elizabethan theatre and to bring to life the greatest works of drama, as they would first have been performed
We are pleased to announce that the troupe will be performing their new show ‘The Comedy of Errors’ at Somerleyton Hall on 6th June.
This fantastical comedy follows two pairs of identical twins, Antipholus of Syracuse and Antipholus of Ephesus, and their servants, both named Dromio. When they were babies, the twins and their parents were separated in a shipwreck; now, years later, as one half of the twins search for the other they unwittingly find themselves in the same city on the same day.
Peter Stickney, Artistic Director says, “This hilarious summer comedy is a complete joy. I can’t think of anything more perfect for a summer’s evening than a classical retelling of this great play set against the background of some of the nation’s most beautiful outdoor venues.”
Be sure to catch this brilliant company perform Shakespeare as it would have been; all male, in the open air (so don’t forget to bring a chair or blanket) and in full Elizabethan costume with traditional music and dance.
FOOD & DRINK: On the evening we will have picnics and food available from our BBQ to purchase, plus, Pimms , bubbles and bottles of wine and soft drinks available.
