The Comedy of Errors Tickets

Shakespeare’s comedy about mistaken identity and long-lost brothers is packed with enough mischief and chaos to make you see double!

A madcap tale of mistaken identity

The Comedy of Errors at the Globe Theatre will have you seeing double and questioning what you thought you knew, as the tale of four long-lost brothers unravels on stage.

Merchant Egeon has twin sons, both named Antiphonus. They have twin servants, both named Dromio. Twenty years after one Antiphonus and one Dromio were lost at sea, their brothers disembark a ship in Ephesus and set in motion a series of bizarre events…

Shakespeare’s hilarious tale of mistaken identity and long-lost brothers is the perfect comedy to enjoy in the open air of the Globe Theatre, directed by Sean Holmes.

Packed with unbelievable twists of fortune and physical comedy, this is one of Shakespeare’s earliest plays, and delights in sleight of hand mischief, as a family is reunited in the most extraordinary of circumstances.

Sometimes what is right in front of you isn’t what it seems - book The Comedy of Errors tickets and delight in this chaotic comedy in the open air of Shakespeare’s Globe.

SeatPlan Recommends: Be part of the action with Yard Standing tickets. At this show, parts of the stage protrude into the crowd, actors pass through (so you may have to move aside quickly) and you will feel totally plunged into the topsy-turvy adventure that's unfolding!
