UK TOUR 2011
The Comedy of Errors is Shakespeare's funniest and smartest comedy. 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 is a sixty minute version of Propeller's acclaimed production of The Comedy of Errors which has been performed in theatres around the globe.
Young audiences will be invited into a performance space where the actors will encourage them to express their response to the work in the freest possible way.
After the performance the actors invite questions and feedback from the audience in an open and engaging dialogue.
Pocket Comedy provides a dynamic, contemporary and physical introduction not only to Shakespeare but for some, to theatre of the highest possible standard.
