British open-air touring theatre company Illyria returns to the Netherlands with Shakespeare’s "The Comedy of Errors" and "The Emperor’s New Clothes" from 30 August till 3 September.

The Comedy of Errors

In the bard’s shortest, funniest and most rumbustious comedy two sets of identical twins, separated at birth, unknowingly end up in the same city, and through a series of chance meetings their lives and sanity begin to unravel.

Recommended for adults and children with a good knowledge of English aged 5+
Running time: 2 hours including 20 minute interval

"The Emperor's New Clothes"

Based on the timeless Hans Christian Andersen story, Illyria first performed this show in 2000 when it was Critic's choice at the Edinburgh Fringe festival and attracted multiple 5-stars reviews on a sellout UK tour.

Recommended for children aged 5+ and their families
Running time: 1 hour 40 minutes including 20 minute interval
Illyria is compliant with the Equity Outdoor Touring Theatre Guidelines.
