Why See The Comedy of Errors?
Shakespeare meets slapstick
A firm favorite of Shakespeare's oeuvre, The Comedy of Errors is a colorful confection of chaos full of witty wordplay, frothy farce, and irresistible anarchy. Returning courtesy of the Shakespeare Theatre Company and directed by Alan Paul, this bubbly comedy will whisk you to a faraway land where the fortunes of two sets of identical twins opens up a world of romance, seductions, brushes with the law, and of course, plenty of instances of mistaken identity.
What is the story of The Comedy of Errors?
Double trouble enters the town of Ephesus when Antipholus and his servant Dromio pitch up looking for their long lost twin brothers, also called Antipholus and Dromio, from whom they were separated by a shipwreck long ago. Almost immediately, things unravel, fast!
Opening night: 25 September 2018

Karnin's play is more than just a popular chestnut. It's also a biting commentary on the corrupting influence of money on politics that feels all too relevant today.
