The RSC brings its Comedy of Errors to the Barbican
Playing from 16th November until 31st December 2021
Shakespeare’s ever popular fairy-tale farce of everyday miracles, mistaken identity and double vision, directed by comedy master Phillip Breen.
A father 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?
Directed by Phillip Breen (The Provoked Wife 2019, The Hypocrite 2017), The Comedy of Errors transfers to the Barbican for 6 weeks only following its summer season in Stratford-upon-Avon. Join us for this joyous moment of reunion, celebration, and laughter.
