About the Show Less...

Shakespeare's comedy of mistaken identity is adapted for young people. Read More >

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.

Paul Hunter, co-founder of innovative theatre company Told By An Idiot, directs.
