Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors at the Abbey Theatre

You'll already have seen the chance to win tickets to see Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors at Dublin's Abbey Theatre over on Here's the new promo video for it.

...two sets of identical twins are separated in childhood. Years later, they all show up in the same place at the same time. The Comedy of Errors tells the story of a father, mother, brothers, sisters, masters and servants, all of whom find themselves confused, baffled and bewildered by the events of a single day.
I'm off to see it tomorrow night. From what I'm hearing, it should be great.


  1. Ah I am raging I couldn't go to this, I'll have to find some sucker to go with me another night!
    Slightly aside-was that 80's film with Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin playing two sets of twins mixed up at birth also based on Comedy of Errors?

  2. Enjoy that! There were spares going in the office today strangely enough but I was beaten to them. Will await le review...

  3. It is essential in Shakespearian comedy to avoid slapstick. This production doesn't seem to.
