The Royal Shakespeare company bring The Comedy of Errors to Nottingham's Theatre Royal
The Royal Shakespeare Company is bringing The Comedy Of Errors to the Theatre Royal, Nottingham, after its summer run in Stratford-upon-Avon.
Directed by Phillip Breen, who has previous directing credits with the RSC, the production tells the story of a father who ends up in the wrong country on the wrong day, a lonely son who loses himself while searching for his brother, and a wife who realises her husband is not the man she thought he was — but rather likes it.
It runs until Sunday.
Phillip said: “When we first conceived of this Comedy of Errors back in 2019, we had no idea that the production would welcome the RSC’s audience back from a global pandemic.
But this play of family reunions — people finding each other once again, people holding each other at sunset — seems entirely apt for this moment, and we can’t wait to get back to work with this fabulous company of actors; with this old play on a new stage for this very new world.”
The Comedy of Errors was planned to be part of the RSC’s 2020 season, but was postponed due to the covid-19 pandemic.
Its cast includes members of the original line-up including Jonathan Broadbent, Greg Haiste and Avita Jay, and some roles have been recast welcoming Hedydd Dylan, Guy Lewis and Rowan Polonski to the company.
