The Leura Shakespeare Festival

Event dates to be confirmed: January 2019

A riotously, raucous Summer Festival about service, appetites and balancing acts - spanning the full reach of comedy - from Shakespeare's dark satirical masterpiece Measure For Measure to Goldoni's Italian dish of laughs Servant of Two Masters.

Botched marriages, dastardly disguises, cunning plots, Men who are wildly unqualified for their jobs and unruly women pushed to the point of performing miracles. Join them this season for a feast of comedy - both light and dark - that will hopefully prove that out of chaos comes progress and satisfaction.

This delightful season features some of Sydney’s best and freshest comedic actors; George Zhao, Yalin Ozucelik, Adele Querol, Gabriel Fancourt, Aanisa Vylet, Samantha Ward, Shingo Usami, Meg Clarke, Andrew Hearle, Jess Loudon, Mackenzie Fearnley, Steph Kelly, Claudia Ware and Janine Watson.
