Propeller's 60-minute version of Shakespeare's comedy of confusion, The Comedy Of Errors. Read More >

Pocket Comedy is Propeller’s 60-minute version of Shakespeare’s comedy of confusion, The Comedy Of Errors.

Two sets of estranged twins, separated at birth, find themselves in the same city 25 years later with hilarious consequences. A series of mistaken identities, assumed personas and wild mishaps bring a family crisis – so complicated that time itself loses the plot – into heart-warming focus. Fortunately the audience is always one step ahead.

Pocket Comedy also includes a 40-minute talkback session where audiences are invited to chat, question and feedback to the performers.

Pocket Comedy is suitable for theatregoers aged eight and older.
