About The Comedy of Errors - Globe

Back by popular demand, get ready to experience ‘the Globe at its most joyous’ (WhatsOnStage) as our ★★★★ production of The Comedy of Errors makes a triumphant return this summer.

Be transported back to Elizabethan London as the Globe transforms into a bustling dock – complete with ship masts and piers – where Shakespeare’s wild comedy about rival cities, long-lost siblings and mistaken identities comes to ‘brisk, boisterous and rib-tickling’ life (The Times) with ‘boundless energy and slapstick silliness’ ★★★★ (Broadway World).

Globe Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes (The Winter’s Tale, 2023) and 2023 Globe Resident Associate Director Naeem Hayat (King Lear, 2022) return to co-direct.

‘One of these men is Genius to the other; And so, of these, which is the natural man And which the spirit? who deciphers them?’ – Act V, scene 1

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Hilarious

See it if you want accessible Shakespeare, a wooden ship which parts the waves of the audience, humour, to see how all the confusion is resolved!

Don’t see it if Shakespeare or Shakespearean stagings are not your thing, or you want super comfortable surroundings, (The Globe is open to the elements)
