The Comedy of Errors

Globe Theatre
Prices: £75.00 - £5.00 Book Now

Back by popular demand, get ready to experience ‘the Globe at its most joyous’ (WhatsOnStage) as our ★★★★ production of The Comedy of Errors makes a triumphant return this summer.

Be transported back to Elizabethan London as the Globe transforms into a bustling dock – complete with ship masts and piers – where Shakespeare’s wild comedy about rival cities, long-lost siblings and mistaken identities comes to ‘brisk, boisterous and rib-tickling’ life (The Times) with ‘boundless energy and slapstick silliness’ ★★★★ (Broadway World).

Globe Associate Artistic Director  Sean Holmes (The Winter’s Tale, 2023) and 2023 Globe Resident Associate Director Naeem Hayat (King Lear, 2022) return to co-direct.

One of these men is Genius to the other;
And so, of these, which is the natural man
And which the spirit? who deciphers them?

– Act V, scene 1
