The Comedy of Errors

Back by popular demand, get ready to experience ‘the Globe at its most joyous’ (WhatsOnStage) as our ★★★★ production of THE COMEDY OF ERRORS makes a triumphant return to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre this summer.

Our ‘rib-tickling’ (The Times) production of Shakespeare’s hilarious tale of long-lost siblings and mistaken identities triumphantly returns to the Globe this summer. Globe Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes and 2023 Globe Associate Director Naeem Hayat (King Lear, 2022) return to co-direct.

‘One of these men is Genius to the other;
And so, of these, which is the natural man
And which the spirit? who deciphers them?’
Act V, scene 1

What is The Comedy of Errors about?

Be transported back to Elizabethan London as the Globe transforms into a bustling dock – complete with ship masts and piers – where Shakespeare’s wild comedy about rival cities, long-lost siblings and mistaken identities comes to ‘brisk, boisterous and rib-tickling’ life (The Times) with ‘boundless energy and slapstick silliness’ ★★★★ (Broadway World).
