The colourful production drew a crowd of onlookers to watch the drama - with a range of actors and actresses dressed in bright spot-covered clown or pierrot outfits, elegant 18th century dresses, regal hats and all wearing face masks.
The play culminated in a battle scene between two of the characters, which created some tension among the people watching as the scene unravelled.
