"4 actors, 4 bicycles, 40 characters and a 2000 mile adventure." The HandleBards - a madcap, 4-strong, all-male troupe of players – are cycling to the BOS Theater to perform The Comedy of Errors! On just four bicycles they will carry all the necessary set, props, costumes and camping equipment to perform Shakespeare's anarchic farce of mistaken identity and far too many twins. The HandleBards do Shakespeare differently - using bikes to power various surprises and contraptions on-stage, whilst playing all the parts in Director James Farrell's wild 1930s indie-folk romp. Find out more about the tour at www.peculius.com, and follow the team on Facebook and Twitter (@peculius).
