Shakespeare's Globe

The Comedy Of Errors [2011]

Written by: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Rebecca Gatward

Take one pair of estranged twins (both called Antipholous) and one pair of twin servants (both called Dromio), keep them in ignorance of each other and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery and you have the chief ingredients for theatrical chaos. Fast-paced, hilarious and seemingly irreverent, the young William Shakespeare explores themes in this comedy that recur again and again in his later work: mistaken identity, coincidence and the importance of family.

Following on from the 2009 and 2010 tour, The Comedy of Errors is revived once more. 8 actors new and old take this fast and furious Shakespeare play to the USA.
