About this show

Imagine arriving somewhere new, only to find that everyone there already seems to know who you are. When Antipholus arrives in Ephesus in search of his family, he gets a little more than he bargained for. Strangers say hello as if they've known him for years, people give him expensive jewellery and a rather odd woman seems to think she's his wife. Two sets of identical twins later, everyone is very confused...

First Encounters with Shakespeare: The Comedy of Errors is a twin-tastic 90 minutes of comic confusion and mistaken identity aimed at 7 to 13 year olds, but hugely entertaining whatever your age.
