THERE will be a chance to see open air Shakespeare performed in the grounds of a 16th century farm house at Three Oaks this weekend.

Bowler Crab Productions will be presenting Twelfth Night tonight (Friday 27) and Saturday (28).

When twins are split in a ship wreck, how will a young lady survive in an unknown land? - by dressing as her dead brother of course!.

With such gender bending, the inhabitants of Illyria are soon confused by their feelings towards Viola (Cesario), particularly when both a man and a woman fall in love with her/him.

But how will events unfold with the arrival of another handsome gentleman who looks remarkably like Cesario?

A spokesperson from Bowler Crab said: “Throw in a prank or two involving yellow stockings, cakes and ale and you have one of the funniest nights of your life!”

The action takes place in the grounds of Half House Farm.

The grounds will be open from 6pm with performances starting at 7pm.

Bring your own refreshments and glasses as well as comfortable chairs and appropriate clothing.

Tickets are £12.50 and are available from or from Rye and Hastings Tourist Information Centres.

They can also be booked by calling 07801 893115.
