Royal Shakespeare Company brings back live theatre shows
Live performances return to the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) in Stratford-upon-Avon with an outdoor show of The Comedy of Errors.

The RSC is creating a new garden theatre for summer productions


The RSC is creating a special outdoor stage for its summer production - the Lydia & Manfred Gorvy Garden Theatre - so they can continue with live shows amid Covid restrictions.

The newly constructed theatre will be close to the banks of the River Avon in the Swan Theatre Gardens, Stratford upon Avon.

Theatregoers will be able to enjoy outdoor performances of Shakespeare's farce about mistaken identity and twins from July 13 to September 26.

Directed by Phillip Breen, who was behind RSC productions of The Provoked Wife and The Hypocrite, the story is a hilarious tale of missing brothers who are finally reunited with their family after plenty of confusion involving two sets of twins.

It is one of Shakespeare's popular comedies that dates back to 1594 when it was performed as part of Christmas festivities in Holborn.

Over the summer, the RSC will also have free pop-up performances, interactive workshops and outdoor performances for families from July 27 to August 20 on the Bancroft Terrace and across the newly installed Garden Theatre.
