"Stylish, vibrant and uproariously funny.”

Shakespeare Under The Stars

One of the Bard's earliest and best comedies, this play is packed with joyous chaos and fun. Pack a picnic and your best company and join us for another Shakespeare under the stars at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne.

The Comedy of Errors is a joyful journey of chaos and confusion caused when two sets of identical twins, separated at birth, end up in the same town on the same day. Shakespeare’s fast paced comedy takes us on a roller-coaster day of mistaken identities that leads to seduction, arrest, infidelity, beatings, theft, and general all round madness.

“A wonderful romp of complete ridiculousness.” - SameSame
