Background

Shakespeare’s Globe On Tour returns to the beautiful grounds of Chilham Castle to present a trio of plays exploring the themes of refuge and displacement. The plays are performed as a touring production would have been staged in the 17th century, with a stripped back booth stage, and a small, versatile troupe of actors. Taking on multiple roles across all three plays, the talented cast will unravel these timeless tales of those who have crossed seas and lost their families, are seeking lost homes, and finding out what belonging truly means to them.

Our Touring Ensemble are taking The Comedy of Errors, Pericles and Twelfth Night on a national and international tour.

Please note: this is an open-air event and the performance will take place in all but the most inclement weather conditions.

Premium tickets includes a reception held in the Castle’s Great Hall with Taittinger champagne and canapés, exclusive entry through the front gates and parking on the hard standing outside the front of Chilham Castle.

Seating is unreserved.

The Comedy of Errors

Take one pair of estranged twin brothers (both named Antipholus), and one pair of estranged twin servants (both named Dromio) – both pairs separated at sea. Add a dash of mistaken identity and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery, and you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos…

Pericles

The spirit of fairy tale is never far from the surface of Pericles, the first of Shakespeare’s late romances. Imbued with music, miracles, and the constant presence of the sea, this little-seen work sees Pericles, Prince of Tyre, forced to flee his own kingdom and wander the world.

Twelfth Night

When a shipwreck tears a family apart, twins Sebastian and Viola seek refuge in a new land. Filled with unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with subtle poetry, expressed through some of Shakespeare’s most exquisite songs.
