“We’re looking forward to welcoming people with their picnics and deckchairs for a really fun night of theatre.

“Illyria has a great reputation for outdoor theatre and we’re really pleased to be able to bring this production to the area during the summer holidays.”

Illyria’s fast and furious madcap style is should entertain the whole family, from theatre devotees to live performance newcomers.
