The Comedy of Errors
Citizens theatre on tour
Following a limited run in Glasgow last year, our 5-star show is back. Directed by Dominic Hill, widely celebrated for his fresh takes on classical dramas, the vibrant production features a multi-talented ensemble, live music and audience interaction.
The Comedy of Errors previews at Beacon Arts Centre (19 - 20 Aug) before touring to Scottish Opera's Live at No.40 here in Glasgow (26 Aug - 3 Sep) and Perth Theatre (7 - 17 Sep).
Two identical twin brothers and their identical servants are separated by a shipwreck. Years later, unknown to each other, they all end up on the same island. Before a celebratory family reunion can happen, a series of wild mishaps and delightful mayhem begins – including baffling encounters, false accusations, wrongful arrests, and a near-seduction.
Bursting with joyful energy and slapstick humour, this fast-paced comedy is the perfect feel-good event.
BSL, Captioned and Audio Described performances are available in Glasgow.

“The production twinkles with well-honed slapstick and Shakespeare’s witty dialogue”
- The Stage on The Comedy of Errors 2021
“This frustratingly truncated run of The Comedy of Errors... is a production that demands a rapid return”
- The National on The Comedy of Errors 2021
"It's an extraordinarily brilliant play. It's a perfect little gem of a piece... it is beautifully written, short, concise and genuinely funny."
