iVisit.... The Comedy of Errors at Chatsworth House

  • The Comedy of Errors Chatsworth House, Chatsworth, Bakewell Derbyshire, DE45 IPP United Kingdom (map)

Bring a picnic and spend a glorious summer’s evening watching this funny, magical and fast-paced production of one of Shakespeare’s best comedies in the spectacular setting of Chatsworth.

The Lord Chamberlain’s Men invite you to join them this summer for Shakespeare’s most hilarious farce, The Comedy of Errors.

This fantastical comedy follows two pairs of identical twins, Antipholus of Syracuse and Antipholus of Ephesus, and their servants, both named Dromio. When they were babies, the twins and their parents were separated in a shipwreck. Now, years later, as one half of the twins search for the other they unwittingly find themselves in the same city on the same day.

I to the world am like a drop of water
That in the ocean seeks another drop,

A magical and comically entwined tale of merchants, masters, parents, servants 

and a long-suffering wife plays itself out over the course of one hectic day. This riotous rollercoaster of a comedy will keep you guessing and laughing until its joyous conclusion.

I see two husbands or my eyes deceive me.
