Two twin brothers both called Antipholus; two twin servants both called Dromio; all ignorant that their twin resides in the same city as them. In Shakespeare’s popular comedy, confusion reigns and everyone is mistaken for someone else.
This production of The Comedy Of Errors has been specially created for young people, as part of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Young People’s Shakespeare programme. It plays as part of the RSC’s 10-week residency at the Roundhouse, with its 44-strong ensemble performing eight different plays.
