Details

Join The Lord Chamberlain’s Men in Holkham Walled Garden this summer for one of Shakespeare’s early plays, a humorous, light comedy driven by slapstick and mistaken identity. 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. The Lord Chamberlain’s Men performs Shakespeare as it would have been; all male, in the open air and in full Elizabethan costume with traditional music and dance.
Tickets: Adult £15, Child £10, Family (2 adults and up to 2 children) £45.
