CD#17 – Shakespeare al fresco

Here is an event for those of you who enjoy Shakespeare. Tomorrow evening (10th August) the touring company Illyria will be staging their version of The Comedy of Errors at the Castle – so if you are a fan of the Bard, this is literally right up your street!

Comedy of Errors – a Mexican version

Illyria has been round a number of years – 26 years in fact. Julie (in a previous role as an events organiser) booked them in their very first season all those years ago. The company have gone from strength to strength and now tour around the UK with a number of productions. If you would like to know what to expect from this Mexican version of the Bard’s shortest and funniest comedy, read this review from the company’s Penzance performance (click on the image to make it legible).

Tomorrow night’s performance will be staged in front of the Castle. It starts at 6pm and lasts 2hrs, including of a 20-minute interval. As a member of the Castle community you can buy tickets for a discounted rate of £10. Simply arrive and purchase your tickets ‘on the door’ (although that will actually be under the gazebo in the visitors’ car park – due to the absence of an actual door!)

Don’t forget to bring a chair or rug, warm clothes and something to nibble on. The forecast is fine for tomorrow evening, so you may wish to be brave and leave the umbrella at home.

We hope you will join us to experience a laughter-filled evening of entertainment.
