Montgomery Town Council Present... The Comedy of Errors - 17th August

IIlyria theatre group return to Montgomery Castle on Aug 17th at 7pm with an open air performance of Shakespearean comedy A Comedy of Errors. 
Two sets of identical twins, separated at birth, unknowingly end up in the same city.  More and more people are sucked into a vortex of mistaken identity including an Officer who is paid per arrest, a Goldsmith who hasn't been paid at all, a delayed Merchant, an irate Courtesan and a mad Exorcist.  To say nothing of a wife who sometimes feels her husband is two different personalities, and a poor Immigrant who is arrested for being the wrong nationality.  And what exactly is the Abbess of Ephesus's dark secret?  Will anything ever make sense again?
To cap it all, this year Illyria’s Shakespeare production is re-located to the town of Ephesus, Mexico, and is performed by a 5-piece Mariachi band, resplendent in ponchos and sombreros. Ay caramba.
The event will be accessible for wheelchair users, and there will be limited seating only.
The play is organised by Montgomery Town Council and supported by the Arts Council of Wales’ “Night Out” scheme and Hanratty’s Solicitors Newtown.
Organiser Councillor Mike Mills said, “I am thrilled to be involved with this project, last year’s play was a great success, hopefully people will come along with their picnics and enjoy a superb night of outdoor theatre at one of the most dramatic venues in Montgomeryshire “There are only 180 tickets available and they are selling fast already”.
Due to the Castle’s location there is only limited parking, audience members are requested to park in Montgomery and walk up to the venue.

Tickets at £15 for adults and £9 for children are available at Bunners Montgomery or on telephone 01686 668442
