The Comedy of Errors in Rougemont Gardens

The Exeter Northcott Theatre Graduate Company present

The Comedy of Errors

By William Shakespeare


Thu 20 – Sun 30 July 7.30pm

Matinees: Tue 25, Wed 26, Thu 27, Sat 22 & 29, Sun 23 & 30 July 2pm



Supported by Exeter Northcott Theatre alumnus John Nettles and by The Foyle Foundation, this new company will give opportunities to graduates to further hone their skills in the world of Shakespeare and other more demanding parts of the repertoire where opportunities for graduates are relatively scarce.


The actors will be mentored and supported by skilled professionals including John himself and our Associate Company (of clowns) Le Navet Bete. 


“We came into the world like brother and brother,

And now let's go hand in hand, not one before another.”


The comedy is fast and furious in this uproarious story of two pairs of identical twins, separated at birth.  Mayhem, mischief and mistaken identities litter the road to their ultimate reunion in Shakespeare’s paciest and most hilarious farce.  Expect plenty of clowning and lots of laughter.


This is an outdoor event with no formal seating so please bring chairs, blankets, cushions and picnic mats. No glass permitted on site.
