CancelledThe Comedy of Errors
A Note From Bell Shakespeare:
We regret to advise that the performance of Bell Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, will not proceed as scheduled.
Like all companies in the live performance sector, Bell Shakespeare has been significantly impacted by the essential restrictions enforced in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Comedy of Errors was to be a major national tour scheduled to open in regional NSW in late June, then touring to 28 venues around Australia. Unfortunately we have no choice but to cancel the tour in its entirety.
Bell Shakespeare’s annual national tour is at the heart of what we do – sharing Shakespeare with Australians everywhere. It is a highlight of our year, and the decision to cancel has not been made lightly. But as ever, the health and wellbeing of our artists and communities remains the primary concern for us all.
Bell Shakespeare thanks you for your support and friendship during this difficult time.
Shipwrecked and separated 25 years earlier, two sets of long-lost twins miraculously find themselves in the same city on the same day. What could possibly go wrong?
The Comedy of Errors is a hilarious romp of swapped identities, misguided love, mistaken imprisonment and chaotic mishaps, leading to an unbelievably crazy day for bumbling twins.
At the heart of this tale of comedic misfortune is an old man searching for his lost children who has found himself in the fight of his life… to save his life. As far-fetched coincidences unfold, chaotic hilarity ensues and a man’s life could be saved — if only everything would go to plan.
Directed by Bell Shakespeare’s Artistic Director Peter Evans, this is a beautiful story about reunion, wrapped up in an evening of entertainment and laughter.
After a day of mistaken identity leading to unfair thrashings, wrongful arrests and false charges of infidelity, robbery, madness and even demonic possession, can the twins possibly reunite and live happily ever after?
