Have fun with Shakespeare's playful farce.

Following a limited run in Glasgow last year, the Citizens Theatre's 5 star show is heading to the Beacon. Directed by Dominic Hill, widely celebrated for his fresh takes on classical dramas, the vibrant production features a multi-talented ensemble, live music and audience interaction.

Two identical twin brothers and their identical servants are separated by a shipwreck. Years later, unknown to each other, they all end up on the same island. Before a celebratory family reunion can happen, a series of wild mishaps and delightful mayhem begins - including baffling encounters, false accusations, wrongful arrests and a near-seduction.

Bursting with joyful energy and slapstick humour, this fast-paced comedy is the perfect feel-good event.
