The Comedy of Errors at Grosvenor Park, Chester 25 — 30 August 2020 Tickets from £28.80 — Book now

Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre bursts back into life for one production this August with Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors. Performed live in the wonderful surroundings of Grosvenor Park, the play will be performed with a reduced 20% audience capacity – giving a real step in the right direction for more live performances to resume in the near future.

“Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast.”

Established in 2010, Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre is one of the UK’s best-loved open-air theatres and regularly plays to sold-out audiences across the summer. The theatre is produced by Storyhouse, Chester’s award-winning cultural centre.

Directed by Storyhouse’s Artistic Director Alex Clifton, The Comedy of Errors is a rare, wildly light-hearted treat for all ages. With two sets of estranged twins loose on the island of Ephesus, things are bound to get complicated. This is a classic Shakespearean comedy packed with mistaken identity, music and much mayhem. Masters and servants, husbands and wives, parents and children, strangers and natives all get terribly confused in Shakespeare’s mishap strewn comedy.

“Yet this my comfort: when your words are done,
My woes end likewise with the evening sun.”

Joyous and heartwarming, and huge fun for the whole family,  The Comedy of Errors promises to be a hot ticket and a welcome treat for those theatre-lovers who have been starved of live performance for so long.
