Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors
and
Alan Plater's Sweet William


Barrie Rutter performs and directs a large cast of 14 northern actors who all sing, dance and perform an array of outstanding music composed, as always, by Conrad Nelson.


Comedy of Errors is a wonderful comic exasperation of mistaken identity. With its zany plot centred on two sets of twins, a pair of sisters, a mother and a father, this farcical caper through the island of Ephesus culminates in a fantastically light hearted resolution.


Sweet William is an irreverent Elizabethan comedy set in an East End pub. Inhabited by a host of colourful characters who are all Shakespeare's friends, they each have a bone or two to pick with the Bard when he arrives for a night on the town. Written especially for the company by BAFTA and INTERNATIONAL EMMY AWARD winning writer, Alan Plater,

Sweet William is guaranteed to make you laugh, this boozy romp is filled with hilarious songs, knock about humour and tons of references to Shakespeare's plays, and Northern Broadsides!
