“4 men, 4 bikes and some pretty extreme Shakespearean adventures”
On Wednesday 13th May, The HandleBards Theatre Company treated us to a fun and an open-air performance in the Museum Gardens. We had the pleasure of watching Shakespeare’s play – The Comedy of Errors.
The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their twin brothers, Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus. And that is when the fun starts as their identities become muddled by everyone around them.
When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities leads to wrongful beatings, the arrest of Antipholus of Ephesus, and false accusations , theft and madness.
It sounds like a confusing tale but the performance by The HandleBards Theatre made it clear, easy to follow, exciting and absolutely hilarious.
We had a great and relaxing afternoon after a very busy morning with Maths SAT’s papers.
