The House of Dun, near Montrose, will next month form the impressive backdrop for a performance of Shakesepeare’s ‘A Comedy of Errors’.

The 18th century Adam building will be floodlit for the all-male production by The Festival Players, who will be making a return visit to Dun.

Beginning at 7 p.m., the play will be staged in the grounds of the estate on Friday, August 1.

The production, directed by Michael Dyer, will be the perfect occasion to enjoy theatrical materpiece, performed by one of the UK’s best small theatre companies.

Shakespeare’s shortest play is a brilliant farce of mistaken identities, combined with a few undertones of the dramatic and sinister.

A master and his servant arrive in a foreign port which, unbeknown to them, is the home of their long-lost twin brothers. Mayhem ensues as brother is taken for brother in a riotous train of misunderstandings, seduction, and pursuit.
