THE COMEDY OF ERRORS - A TOUCHING AND COMEDIC PLAY
The Royal Shakespeare Company’s hilarious and touching production of The Comedy of Errors – is
coming to the Alhambra Theatre, Bradford next month.
The production, directed by Phillip Breen, was due to be part of the RSC’s 2020 season, but was
postponed owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 17-strong cast includes members of the original
acting company, with a number of roles recast. The 2021 production of The Comedy of Errors is
sponsored by Darwin Escapes.
The Comedy of Errors tells the story of a father who ends up in the wrong country on the wrong day
as a government makes hasty proclamations about travel. A lonely son, while searching for his
brother, loses himself. Across town a wife starts to realise her husband is not the man she thought he
was (but rather likes it). Will anything ever be the same again?
Director Phillip Breen says:
“When we first conceived of this Comedy of Errors back in 2019, we had no idea that the
production would welcome the RSC’s audience back from a global pandemic. But this play of
family reunions – people finding each other once again, people holding each other at sunset –
seems entirely apt for this moment, and we can’t wait to get back to work with this fabulous
company of actors; with this old play on a new stage for this very new world.”
