Handlebards: A Comedy of Errors

Book now

Join the Handlebards troupe at Dulwich Picture Gallery for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors like you’ve never seen before.  

Pedalling from venue to venue with all of their set, props and costumes on the back of their bikes, the HandleBards are a four-strong troupe of actors who are spending the summer bringing environmentally sustainable Shakespeare to venues across the UK.  

When two sets of estranged twins are brought together on the same island, this classic comedy takes hold, with mistaken identity, music and manic costume changes a plenty.  

This is an outdoor production, so please bring a chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather!
