A SHAKESPEARE play aimed at children will be performed at Bath's Egg Theatre.
Acclaimed theatre company Propeller will perform a 60-minute version of The Comedy Of Errors.
Its pocket theatre productions are adaptations of full-scale tours, specifically aimed at young people and first-time theatre-goers.
Under the direction of Edward Hall, the all-male company brings texts alive with poetry, speed and imagination.
The Comedy Of Errors is one of Shakespeare’s most farcical plays, telling the story of two estranged twins who were separated at birth.
They find themselves in the same city 25 years later with hilarious consequences and a series of mistaken identities and wild mishaps ensue.
The pocket theatre initiative delivers a first-class compact theatrical experience
Propeller’s shows use a mix of masks, animations and modern film and music to entertain its audiences.
The show will be at the Theatre Royal Bath’s Egg Theatre tomorrow (Friday) at 10.30am and 1pm and Saturday at 2pm and 7pm.
Tickets, priced £10-12, are available from the box office on 01225 448844 or online at www.theatreroyal.org.uk
