The outdoor performance at Bantock House Museum and Park is being performed by all male cast The Lord Chamberlain's Men.

It is part of a national tour of castles, historic houses and cathedrals and arrives at the Finchfield Road venue, on Friday 11 August.

Wearing full Elizabethan costume, with traditional music and dance, the open-air show promises a summer evening of laughter.

Councillor John Reynolds, City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "Bantock House Museum and Park is an ideal setting for this summer performance. Bring a picnic and enjoy an evening of Shakespeare."

Shakespeare's comedy follows two pairs of identical twins, Antipholus of Syracuse and Antipholus of Ephesus, and their servants, both named Dromio.

When they were babies, the twins and their parents were separated in a shipwreck. Years later, as one half of the twins search for the other they unwittingly find themselves in the same city on the same day.

Tickets for the performance, which runs from 6.45pm to 9pm, are available by calling 0870 320 7000.
