The Comedy Of Errors

A brand new bicycle-powered, farcical production.

The Comedy Of Errors are pedalling from venue to venue with their set, props and costumes on the back of their bikes, the HandleBards are a four-strong troupe of actors who are spending the summer bringing environmentally sustainable Shakespeare to venues across the UK.

Join the all-male troupe for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s The Comedy Of Errors like you’ve never seen before.

When two sets of estranged twins are brought together on the same island, this classic comedy takes hold, with mistaken identity, music and manic costume changes a plenty.

This is an outdoor production, so please bring a chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather!

Please note:

This production takes place in The Franciscan Gardens, off Stour Street (postcode CT1 2NR). There is no parking at the venue.

Tickets available for collection in advance from our Box Office or at the entrance to the gardens from 5pm on the day of the performance.

Access to The Franciscan Gardens is via entrance on Stour Street. The entrance way is through grey wooden doors opposite The Old Brewery Tavern. The garden will open for ticket holders only no earlier than 5pm on the day of the performance. Please note that on mobile maps, The Franciscan Gardens may show as Greyfriars Gardens.
