The Comedy Of Errors - Postponed
In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, it is with a very heavy heart that The Castle Player’s Trustees have had to decide to cancel this summer's production of The Comedy of Errors. This means that for the first time in thirty-one years the company is unable to produce a summer show.
With Government advice and an indeterminate end to the impact of the virus, the decision in many ways has been taken for us, and I can only thank the production’s director - Gordon Duffy-McGhie - the cast, and everyone involved for their commitment and understanding. Sad though the cancellation is, I am equally delighted that Gordon has agreed to continue as production director, and that The Comedy of Errors will feature as the company’s summer 2021 production, giving us much to look forward to.
On behalf of the Trustees, I would like to wish everyone well at this worrying time. I hope everyone will follow Government advice, and that by supporting each other, and those around us, we will see ourselves through the challenges ahead. Our thoughts are especially with those working in the health service and other frontline services to keep us safe..
With my very best wishes and those of the Trustees,
