The Comedy of Errors

By William Shakespeare

Dublin Youth Theatre

14 – 18 Aug | 8pm | Boys School

Preview: Tue 14 Aug

Opening Night: Wed 15 Aug

Matinees: Wed 15 + Sat 18 | 3pm

In a strange city where everyone watches everyone else, strangers are never welcome. Two young visitors arrive in the city unaware that their long-lost twins already live there. But really, what’s the worst that could happen?

Over the course of a single day, everything that can go wrong will go wrong: a marriage at breaking point, a missing gold chain, an unpaid debt, mistaken identity, arrest, a suspected case of demonic possession… and the small matter of a long-lost father facing execution before the day is out.

Shakespeare’s most anarchic comic creation is brought vividly to life by a cast of twenty-one performers in this riotous contemporary staging, complete with original music and live band.

‘We came into the world as brother and brother
So let’s go hand in hand, not one before another.’
