The Comedy of Errors

Shakespeare’s brilliant farce of mistaken identity and slap-stick frivolity is set in the superb setting of St John’s College gardens. Antipholus (of Ephesus), with his servant Dromio, think their twin brothers (also called Antipholus and Dromio) have been drowned at sea many years earlier. But Antipholus (of Syracuse), with his servant Dromio, come ashore, with neither knowing the other exists. The locals constantly confuse the pairs (even including Antipholus’ wife!) and the comedy of errors ensues. Don’t miss this fast-paced and sparkling production.

This superb cast hurl themselves into the sheer absurdity, never allowing the pace or energy to drop once, and skilfully work the audience into a wheezing, gut-busting lather… delivering more laughs per minute than Ken Dodd on speed. The only error here would be to miss it —Cambridge News
