The Comedy of Errors – Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre

August 8, 2020 - August 30, 2020

Storyhouse’s flagship open-air theatre is to return with a new show for August, despite having been forced to postpone this year’s original season of three shows to 2021.

Grosvenor Park’s highly acclaimed production of The Comedy of Errors, directed by Artistic Director Alex Clifton, will play from 8th – 30th August in the organisation’s iconic pop-up theatre, with 8 actors working in a “bio-bubble”.

The Comedy of Errors will perform to an audience of 150 – or 25% of normal capacity, meaning only 4,000 tickets are available for sale with producers expecting very brisk demand.

Actors will work in a controlled bio-bubble and are tested regularly. They are rehearsing on Zoom or in the outdoors, but never inside. The theatre’s stage-side deckchairs are making way to provide further distance to the performers, both performers and audience will need to manage social distancing.  As with all the producer’s events, customers are asked to wear face coverings on the move but not when sitting down.  Entrance times are staggered to avoid a queue. Part of the ticket price is a donation which helps manage the risk in case of a local lockdown and this is a model the producer is trialling to enable future productions to take place economically.

Tickets go on sale to members and Grosvenor Park regulars on Tues 28 July with general sale Mon 3rd August. Performances start Saturday 8th August.
