About

Directed by Mags Delaney

This riotous comedy centres on two sets of identical twins who were separated as young children in a shipwreck.

One half of each set of twins grows up in the ancient city of Ephesus and the other Syracuse in ignorance of the others existence.

When the Syracusan twins land in Ephesus (a city which has banned, on pain of death, anyone from Syracuse) a hilarious series of misidentifications takes place leading to a revelation that no one sees coming.

This early Shakespearean comedy is full of wordplay and laughs and is Shakespeare’s first use of twins for dramatic effect.

About The PumpHouse Amphitheatre

The amphitheatre is tucked in behind the French Rendez-vous Cafe building next to The PumpHouse main theatre. Access is via the courtyard stairs adjacent to the main theatre.

Wheelchair access to the amphitheatre is via a path on the park side of the complex.

Tickets to performances in the amphitheatre are general admission i.e seating is ‘first come first served’.  The amphitheatre has tiered wooden bench seating. Seats do not have back support. If you require a seat with back support please advise the ushers when you arrive at the venue. They will provide a chair for you in the back row. Similarly, if you have any other special requirements, e.g mobility access assistance, please see one of the ushers when you arrive.

Audience members often bring cushions to sit on for greater comfort and blankets in case the evening cools down towards the end to the show. If the mozzies are biting this summer, it might a good idea to have repellent on hand.

Sorry, BYO alcohol isn’t permitted under our Liquour Licence but the French Rendez-vous Cafe Satellite Bar will be open and the usual sausage sizzle will crank into action at interval.

In the event of persistent bad weather a performance may take place inside the main theatre.  If the weather looks changeable, bring a raincoat and something waterproof to sit on. If there’s a passing shower, the performance may go ahead outdoors as planned. If a performance is cancelled, tickets may be transferred to another date in the season without incurring a transfer fee.
