Oddsocks Productions return with a summer delight not to be missed!
The Comedy of Errors is one of William Shakespeare's early plays. It is one of his most farcical comedies, with a major part of the humour coming from slapstick and mistaken identity of the twin-brothers.
A servant and master from far off Syracuse arrive in Ephesus in search of their long-lost twin brothers. In no time at all they are trapped in a terrifying chain of chaotic events. Tormented by a wild wife, a moody mistress, challenged by a crazy jeweller and damned by a demonic doctor the terrified twosome run headlong into a climactic happy ending which defies all probability. A summer delight not to be missed!
