Festival Players to perform "A Comedy of Errors"

Posted on Aug 12th 2014
Festival Players will perform A Comedy of Errors on Scilly

The highly acclaimed Festival Players, a professional touring theatre company established in 1986 is coming to Scilly to perform Shakespeare's "A Comedy of Errrors". 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 colourful and entertaining romp performed by our traditional all-male cast. The Festival Players will be performing at the Chaplaincy Gardens, St. Mary's on Saturday 16th September and at Treaco Abbey Garden on Sunday 17th.  For further information and tickets, you can contect our Tourist Information Centre on 01720 424031 or go to the Festival Players website.
