Shakespeare Link’s Willow Globe is proud to be finally opening its live season on Saturday, August 8, with The Comedy of Errors performed by The Wet Mariners.

The Wet Mariners, loved by local audiences for their wit and verve, are a company of professional actors who regularly perform at the Royal Shakespeare Company and Royal National Theatre.

Shakespeare Link have taken considerable care to ensure this performance will comply with the Welsh Government guidelines.

Willow Globe manager Kama Roberts said: “We are so excited to have audiences back sitting in the outdoor theatre.

“Numbers will, of course, be limited to help us make sure we can run the event as safely as possible.

“We have already had so many requests for tickets The Wet Mariners have agreed to perform the show three times over the weekend”.

Organisers say it will be a “vibrant and extraordinary” production with only four actors performing in a play of 16 characters with less than a week to rehearse.

But they are used to challenges, at the beginning of lockdown they performed for the Willow Globe ‘A Midsummer Night’s Stream’ via Zoom to a live audience of more than 300 people which has since gained more than 1,300 views .

Although many tickets have already been allocated, Willow Globe are holding some back for local members of the community who might not have access to the internet.

Meanwhile local residents can get hold of tickets for the season by telephoning 01597 811487 by Friday, July 31.
