I in earth, in heaven, or in hell?
Sleeping or waking? mad or well advised?
Known unto these, and to myself disguised!
Two sets of twins separated at birth collide in the same city without meeting for one crazy day, as multiple mistaken identities lead to confusion on a grand scale. And for no one more so than Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant Dromio who, in search of their brothers, arrive in a land entirely foreign to their distant home. A buzzing metropolis, to the outsiders it appears a place of wonderment and terror, where baffling gifts and unexplained hostilities abound.
Dominic Cooke, Director of the celebrated Royal Court Theatre in London, comes to the National Theatre for the first time to direct Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors. Famed U.K. comedian and actor Lenny Henry makes his NT debut as Antipholus of Syracuse.
