The Comedy of Errors

About the production

DYT's Big Show for 2018 is Shakespeare’s classic comedy about family, mistaken identity and a race against time.

The Comedy of Errors

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Liam Halligan

In a strange city where everyone watches everyone else, strangers are never welcome. Two young visitors arrive in the city unaware that their long-lost twins already live there. But really, what’s the worst that could happen?

Over the course of a single day, everything that can go wrong will go wrong: a marriage at breaking point, a missing gold chain, an unpaid debt, mistaken identity, arrest, a suspected case of demonic possession... and the small matter of a long-lost father facing execution before the day is out. 

Shakespeare’s most anarchic comic creation is brought vividly to life by a cast of twenty-one performers in this riotous contemporary staging, complete with original music and live band.

‘We came into the world as brother and brother
So let's go hand in hand, not one before another.’
