Painswick Rococo Garden

July 4th @ 7:00 pm

Pedalling from venue to venue with all of 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 troupe at Painswick Rococo Garden 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!

★★★★★ – “Explodes with energy and is a genuine treat from start to finish” – The Stage, on the HandleBards’ Twelfth Night

Notes on Performance
– Doors open at 6pm, so bring a picnic and come and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
