Shakespeare Theatre Company | The Comedy of Errors 18-19 - Shakespeare Theatre Company The Comedy of Errors 18-19 - Shakespeare Theatre Company

Two sets of twins, each with the same name—what could go wrong? Everything, apparently. Leave logic behind and delight in the confusion of Shakespeare’s beloved comedy, where servants misplace their masters, wives overlook their husbands, and sons forget their fathers. The blunders double, triple and cube until chaos reigns—and everyone is pretty sure that everyone else is completely insane. With a cast of beloved STC performers, Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul (Camelot; Romeo & Juliet) brings the madcap world of The Comedy of Errors to life in all its antic, anarchic glory.



From the Director
Alan Paul

Like all the great romance plays in Shakespeare’s canon, The Comedy of Errors begins with a shipwreck. And while this play is all the things you might think of first – zany gags, physical comedy, mistaken identities and goofy hijinks – it also contains so many of the ideas that Shakespeare brings to full fruition later in his career: the reunion of twins in Twelfth Night, the improbable encounters of The Tempest, the search for redemption and reunion of a family in Pericles and The Winter’s Tale. Errors shares DNA with all of these plays, and I’m excited to dig into the elegant and romantic moments of the show, exploring Shakespeare’s experimentation early in his career.

One final thought: the two sets of twins in this show drive the action, and the twin relationship is an extremely important one that I intend to take seriously. After all – though we weren’t separated by a shipwreck in the Mediterranean – I’m a twin myself.
