The Comedy of Errors Tickets

Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

Long-lost siblings, mistaken identity and incredible plot twists abound as Sean Holmes’ exuberant production returns by popular demand.

Mayhem and Mischief With The Comedy of Errors Tickets

You’ll be seeing double at Shakespeare’s Globe this summer as Sean Holmes’ “joyous” (WhatsOnStage) production of The Comedy of Errors returns for a second season! Shakespeare’s wildly confusing but loveable comedy about long-lost siblings sails back onto the stage due to popular demand, so book early and see if you can work out who is who in this madcap tale of mistaken identity…

What is The Comedy of Errors about?

Merchant Egeon has twin sons who are both named Antiphonus. They have twin servants… who are both named Dromio. Twenty years after a tragic storm that lost one Antiphonus and one Dromio at sea, their brothers step off a ship in Ephesus and walk straight into a series of increasingly strange events that no one could have ever seen coming.

Cities at war, siblings reunited and mistaken identities - Shakespeare threw the kitchen sink at this bewildering story that sees a family brought back together in the most extraordinary circumstances. Delight in its sleight of hand mischief at the Globe, where the stage is transformed into a bustling dock - complete with ship mast - in this “brisk, boisterous and rib-tickling” (The Times) show.

The Audience Favourite Is Back!

Director Sean Holmes’ joyful and vibrant production of The Comedy of Errors was a huge hit with theatregoers last year thanks to its “boundless energy and slapstick silliness” (Broadway World). One of Shakespeare’s earliest plays feels as fresh and exciting as ever, and thanks to this awe-inspiring production it has become a timeless summer hit that you will want to see again and again.

With set design by Paul Willis that turns the Globe auditorium into a busy dock, you will be dropped right into the middle of the action as sailors, lovers, fighters and brothers run back, forth and in between the audience.

Casting for The Comedy of Errors 2024 is to be confirmed.

Well, the performance - typically for here - was as merry and raucous as you could wish. A boat "sailed" in through the crowd a couple of times, and there was a bit of banter with the crowd near the stage. Interestingly, I see they now have two groun Read more

All in all a good Shakespeare show. good actors, There is diversity. There is not so much decorum. Beautiful outfits. I think they could have done a commentary or something new, but I still enjoyed it

Performance date: 16 July 2023

The first bit is a little slow/dull but it lays our the scene - then it all kicks off and there are some genuinely laugh out loud moments. Brilliant stuff from the Globe.
