The Stephen Joseph Theatre And Shakespeare North Playhouse’s The Comedy of Errors (More or Less) Has Announced Cast, It has been announced that Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre and Prescot’s Shakespeare North Playhouse will collaborate on a vibrant new adaptation of The Comedy of Errors.
The Comedy Of Errors (More Or Less)
Two states are in conflict. Two sets of identical twins. A chaotic beach day. A Yorkshire coastal town hosts the “magnificent” one-man show of a Lancashire actor. The issue is that no one is available to watch him because everyone is scheduled for a talent show with the twin brother he hasn’t met across the street.
His twin brother owes money to everyone in the town, has promised his wife a gold chain, and is betting on winning the talent show to avoid getting into trouble with some bad people. Will the twins get along? Will they discover their split? Is there any way either show will continue?
The Comedy of Errors (more or less) , Shakespeare’s most bizarre farce brought to life in the 1980s, will be an unforgettable performance. Musical numbers, mistaken identity, and theatrical chaos are all to be expected in this day and age of big phones and even bigger shoulder pads!
Andy Cryer, Claire Eden, David (and Peter) Kirkbride, Alyce Liburd, Oliver (and Zach) Mawdsley, and Ida Regan.
Paul Robinson, the artistic director of the Stephen Joseph Theatre, stated that they can’t wait to start this hilarious and anarchic new version of Shakespeare’s craziest play, which is full of misidentifications and continuous turns. Elizabeth Godber and Nick Lane, the show’s writers, have paid homage to the two venues by setting the show in Scarborough in the vivacious, neon-lit 1980s with characters from both towns. Working with the brand-new Shakespeare North Playhouse is a pleasure for them.
