'Edward Hall's superb, all-male company Propeller proves again the value of a true ensemble and a director who treats Shakespeare's plays as if they'd just been written.' The Guardian (on A Midsummer Night's Dream 2009).
The Comedy of Errors is Shakespeare's most farcical comedy, and also his smartest. 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...
Internationally acclaimed all-male company, led by Director Edward Hall, Propeller is renowned for combining a rigorous approach to the text with an exciting, physical aesthetic to engage its audience's imagination and bring fresh understanding to classic plays. It's Shakespeare rediscovered.
