Events, what's on and things to do in and around Stratford-upon-Avon



'A man arrives in a strange town only to find that everyone knows his name, but thinks he’s someone else. Confusion mounts as everyone uncouples from themselves. Will they ever find themselves again? Do they really want to?'

The Comedy of Errors, a fairytale farce of everyday miracles, mistaken identity and double vision, is directed by comedy master Phillip Breen. The production this year will open the Garden Theatre, with performances from 13th July to 26th September 2021.  

The Garden Theatre is a temporary outdoor performance space that will be built in the Swan Gardens, with safe outdoor seating for up to 500 people and great views of the stage.

RSC Creative Team Talk: The Magician's Elephant

Join our actors and members of the creative team as they unwrap our plays and demonstrate some of the skills that go into making them. Our Unwrapped demonstrations offer a peek into the rehearsal room, with the Assistant Director and members of the cast looking at moments from the play. They give an insight into how a scene is taken off the page and onto the stage and show the type of exercises and discussion that took place during rehearsals.
