Open Air Theatre – Handlebards – The Comedy of Errors

Pedalling from venue to venue with all of their set, props and costumes on the back of their bikes, the HandleBards are a four-strong troupe of actors who are spending the summer bringing environmentally sustainable Shakespeare to venues across the UK.

Join the troupe at Raby Castle for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ‘The Comedy of Errors’ like you’ve never seen before. When two sets of estranged twins are brought together on the same island, this classic comedy takes hold, with mistaken identity, music, and manic costume changes a plenty. This is an outdoor production, so please bring a chair or blanket to sit on and dress for the weather!

Food and drink will be available to purchase throughout the show.

Early Bird ticket – £16.50

Adults – £19.50
