Shakespeare's Globe

The Comedy Of Errors [1999]

Written by: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Kathryn Hunter

 The city of Ephesus, a cult centre of the goddess Diana, with a bad reputation for pagan magic, has inflexible laws about immigrants. When a stranger searching for his lost family and servants is sentenced to death, the goddess fortune plays her part, reuniting the scattered family and restoring the battered self. 

As Sir Philip Sidney wrote, comedy:
"is an imitation of the common errors of our life," which the dramatist represents "in the most ridiculous and scornful sort that may be, so as it is impossible that any beholder can be content to be such a one."
