Shakespeare's "The Comedy of Errors", 2.30pm

(site opens at 12.00 for picnicking in the grounds).

Winterbourne Medieval Barn, Church Lane, Winterbourne, South Glos BS36 2EF

"Am I in Earth, in Heaven, or in Hell ?" Shakespeare's shortest play is a brilliant farce of mistaken identities, combined with a few undertones of the dramatic and sinister. A master and his servant arrive in a foreign port which, unbeknown to them, is the home of their long-lost twin brothers. Mayhem ensues as brother is taken for brother in a riotous train of misunderstandings, seduction, and pursuit. A very funny, colourful and entertaining romp for all the family presented by the professional actors of The Festival Players from Stroud.

Free parking is available. Tickets cost £12.50 for adults, £9 for children/students, and may be booked online at www.winterbournebarn.org.uk/events.html or www.thefestivalplayers.org.uk
