Shakespeare’s comedy of separated family and mistaken identity, The Comedy of Errors, is directed by Paul Foster in this new production.

Two sets of twins are separated by a shipwreck and end up in rival cities. After twenty years apart, both sets of twins accidentally cross paths on a bustling dock, and justice, romance and hilarity ensue. Their chance encounter sets in motion a series of wild mishaps and false accusations as the play hurtles towards its finale.

Please note this production contains scenes depicting violence and threat, and references to slavery. The Comedy of Errors contains pyrotechnics, haze, smoking and loud noises.
