About

Two rival states. Two sets of mismatched twins. One nutty day at the seaside.

An actor from Lancashire arrives in a Yorkshire coastal town to perform his 'magnificent' one-man show. Trouble is, there's no audience - everyone's booked for a Talent Show across town starring the twin brother he's never met.

His twin brother owes money all over town, has promised his wife a gold chain and is banking on winning the talent show to avoid getting in trouble with some unsavoury characters...

Will the twins discover each other? Will they learn how they became separated? Will either show go on at all?

Join us for an unforgettable night at the theatre as Shakespeare's most bonkers farce is brought to life in the eighties. Expect mistaken identity, theatrical chaos and belting musical numbers in the era of big phones and even bigger shoulder pads!

If you liked what they did to One Man, Two Guvnors, you’ll LOVE what we’ve done to The Comedy of Errors!
