The Three Inch Fools, known for their contemporary spin on the traditional touring troupe, are preparing for a summer that will go down in (Early Modern) history! Come rain or shine, they will be staging their production in the great British outdoors at over 80 different venues across the UK, including Lyddington Village Green in Rutland.

The rowdy reimagining of a historical great will see the Fools use their fast-paced, physical storytelling style with uproarious music-making at its heart.

The Fools will bring their unique twist to The Comedy of Errors, Shakespeare’s shortest and wildest comedy. The Play That Goes Wrong’s Sean Turner directs this farcical tale of long-lost twins, hysterical misunderstandings, and endless mishaps.

With musical instruments in hand, the clock is ticking as the Fools rush to untangle one almighty mess in what promises to be a joyous take on this Shakespearean rib-tickler.

The tour will kick off at Eastbury Manor House in Barking, a National Trust property that The Three Inch Fools call home, with a rehearsal residency and space for their first performances in Eastbury’s picturesque walled garden.

This innovative touring theatre company are acclaimed for their fast-paced and musically driven approach to theatre. They have built a reputation for staging bold and vibrant open-air productions at some of the UK’s most spectacular historic and natural landmarks.

The Fools will tour the UK this summer. A full list of performances, including dates for their other production, The Secret Diary of Henry VIII, can be found on the Three Inch Fools website.
