The Comedy of Errors cast announced for Shakespeare’s Globe

Shakespeare’s Globe have revealed the cast of their upcoming new production of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors.

The show will star Claire Benedict as Abbess, Matthew Broome as Antipholus of Ephesus, Philip Cumbus as Duke / Pinch, Michael Elcock as Antipholus of Syracuse, George Fouracres as Dromio of Ephesus, Laura Hanna as Adriana, Hari MacKinnon as Angelo, Jordan Metcalfe as Dromio of Syracuse, Phoebe Naughton as Courtesan / First Merchant / Balthazar, Danielle Phillips as Luce / Second Merchant / Messenger, Paul Rider as Egeon, and Jessica Whitehurst as Luciana.

Shakespeare’s madcap comedy about long-lost siblings and mistaken identities will be directed by Globe Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes (The Winter’s Tale).

Director Sean Holmes said: “With The Comedy of Errors, I’m looking forward immensely to creating a pulsating and chaotic Elizabethan world perfectly suited to the Globe’s unique architecture. Though nominally set in Ephesus, the play clearly draws on the energy and chaos of the streets of Shakespeare’s London. The production will strive to recreate that vitality and danger, embracing the specificities of costume, props and design to transport us 400 years into the past, while continuing to speak to now.”

Alongside Holmes, the creative team includes: Naeem Hayat – Associate Director; Grant Olding – Composer; Megan Cassidy and Jackie Orton – Costume Supervisors; Paul Wills – Designer; Maisie Carter – Fight Director; Glynn MacDonald – Globe Associate – Movement; Tamsin Hurtado Clarke – Movement Director; Simon Trinder – Text; Becky Paris – Casting; and Gary Horner – Voice.

The Comedy of Errors is playing at the Globe Theatre from 12 May to 29 July 2023.
