Melbourne, 33 Saxon Street, Brunswick

Event Details

Melbourne Shakespeare Company will once again have you howling with laughter at their dynamic interpretation of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors. This hilarious new production will take you on a whirlwind ride of mistaken identities, assumed personas, and wild mishaps that bring a family crisis so complicated it will leave you seeing double!

Join us as we follow one pair of estranged twin brothers (both called Antipholus), and another pair of estranged twin servants (both called Dromio), as they struggle to make sense of the chaotic world around them! One Antipholus is astonished by his foreign hospitality; the other enraged by the hostility of his home town. The Dromios, caught between the two, are soundly beaten for obeying all the wrong orders.

This perfectly plotted play is filled with the boundless energy, laughs and live music you've come to expect from Melbourne Shakespeare Company and is suitable for people of all ages.

Set in in the beautiful grounds of Siteworks in Brunswick this outdoor spectacular will run for a limited season of just two weeks this March. Featuring local and international talent, The Comedy of Errors will take you on a journey of chaos, confusion and comedy that you will never forget!
