The RSC present Shakespeare’s fairy-tale farce

★★★★★ “Glorious fun” – The Guardian

Following its summer season in Stratford-upon-Avon, the RSC returns to the Barbican this autumn with a new production of The Comedy of Errors. Playing for 6 weeks only, this ever popular fairy-tale farce is filled with everyday miracles, mistaken identity and double vision.

The Comedy of Errors tickets are booking from 16 November 2021 until 31 December 2021 at the Barbican Theatre, London.

What is The Comedy of Errors about?

A father ends up in the wrong country on the wrong day as a government makes hasty proclamations about travel. A lonely son, while searching for his brother, loses himself. Across town a wife starts to realise her husband is not the man she thought he was (but rather likes it). Will anything ever be the same again?
