The Comedy of Errors

14 June - 2 July 2016

The first show in our 10th Anniversary summer season saw us return to the venue where we began in 2006 - the Bandstand in Guildford Castle Gardens.We were thrilled to welcome some of our favourite actors for the season who have worked in so many of our shows in the past, for a rollicking roller-coaster of comedy chaos, directed by Charlotte Conquest. The play's sober opening began at the Castle Keep for the trial of Egeus, searching for his twin sons. We then promenaded the audience through the gardens to bandstand and Ephesus' bustling market place. PJ McEvoy's wacky design really captured the craziness of Shakespeare's finest farce.,

Essential Surrey, Surrey Advertiser

"A masterclass in slapstick… the GSC are proven, skilled craftsmen and you won’t see Shakespeare produced better anywhere else (sorry Stratford)."

"My family and I laughed so much. Spectacularly good – we are so lucky to have them in Guildford!" Audience Member
