The Comedy of Errors

See double this summer as The Comedy of Errors, Shakespeare’s madcap comedy about long-lost siblings and mistaken identities, unravels in the Globe Theatre.


Two sets of twins are separated by a shipwreck and end up in rival cities. After twenty years apart, they inadvertently cross paths and set in motion a series of chaotic events that hurtles towards an extraordinary finale. Seeing isn’t always believing…


Globe Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes (The Tempest, 2022; A Midsummer Night’s Dream, 2021) directs.


‘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

    An excellent performance and top marks especially to the actor who played Ariadne who navigated the stage and whole play with a surgical boot and crutches! The only downside was our seats (see below)

    A lovely romp. Very lively and amusing. Well acted if sometimes difficult to understand what was being said. It is meant to be confusing!
