“I to the world am like a drop of water
That in the ocean seeks another drop”

1901. The Circus of Ephesus. Those caught visiting from nearby Syracuse will be fed to the lions. Antipholus of Syracuse and his trusty fool Dromio brave the journey, each in search of their missing twin. They disguise themselves as circus artists – inadvertently donning the clothes of their missing counterparts and comedy and mayhem ensue…

Marrying a colourful circus-infused physicality with Shakespeare’s linguistic acrobatics and live music, this is a fast paced and joyous new outdoor staging of Shakespeare’s farce of mistaken identity.

This is an outdoor event with no formal seating so please bring chairs, blankets, cushions and picnic mats. No glass permitted on site.  The consumption of alcohol is permitted, but only if purchased from the licensed bar on the theatre site.

Supported by Exeter Northcott Theatre alumnus John Nettles and by The Foyle Foundation.


Picnic Boxes

Why not enjoy a picnic in the grounds before the performance?  We are offering a selection of mouth-watering picnics from £12.50 per person to add to your enjoyment of the evening.  These need to be ordered in advance from the box office or booked online (see supplementary event), for collection on the day at Torre Abbey to enjoy before the performance.
