Fancy seeing The Comedy of Errors with a friend, on us? This summer, we’re giving you the chance to WIN big.

Theatre is back and we’re ready to escape into imagined worlds and enjoy standing ovations all summer. Think outdoor seating, sun beaming and legendary lines you’ll never forget. You can expect all that and more here in Stratford-upon-Avon at the Lydia & Manfred Gorvy Garden Theatre; the brand-new outdoor venue from our corporate partners Royal Shakespeare Company. The Garden Theatre is home to this summer’s production of The Comedy of Errors. To celebrate its arrival, we’ve teamed up with the RSC to give two lucky winners the chance to enjoy the show on us, plus a bundle of exciting prizes promised to make it an experience to remember.

With this highly-anticipated play already creating a buzz in town, here’s everything you need to know…

The Comedy of Errors is believed to be one of Shakespeare’s earlier written plays; a comedy about separated family and mistaken identity.

A father ends up in the wrong country on the wrong day as a government makes hasty proclamations about travel. A lonely son, while searching for his brother, loses himself. Across town a wife starts to realise her husband is not the man she thought he was (but rather likes it). Will anything ever be the same again?

Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, a fairy-tale farce of everyday miracles, mistaken identity and double vision, is directed by comedy master Phillip Breen (The Provoked Wife 2019The Hypocrite 2017)

“After a period in which The Comedy of Errors has been busy as a headline on the government, the RSC gloriously reclaims it for theatre.” – The Guardian

“It’s unsettling, complementary, weird and utterly absorbing: the icing on that tasty summer pudding.” – WhatsOnStage

Join the RSC for a joyous moment of reunion, celebration and laughter in the brand-new open-air Garden Theatre, on the banks of the Avon.

The Comedy of Errors is now playing in the Garden Theatre until 26 September, before the show sets out on tour later in the year.
