The Comedy of Errors (Die Komödie der Irrungen)

Shakespeare's most hilarious farce


2017 is the sixth year of the LEAF Festival (Languages, Education, Arts, Friendship) and it will be presented in Mülheim an der Ruhr from 11th-17th September by Interkultur e.V.

 

Shakespeare will be represented by one of his well-known plays and comedies, ‘The Comedy of Errors’, performed by the most famous British outdoor-theatre group, ‘The Lord Chamberlain’s Men’.

 



The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, the UK’s premier all male theatre company, invite you to join them this summer for Shakespeare’s most hilarious farce, The Comedy of Errors.

 

This fantastical comedy follows two pairs of identical twins, Antipholus of Syracuse and Antipholus of Ephesus, and their servants, both named Dromio. When they were babies, the twins and their parents were separated in a shipwreck; now, years later, as one half of the twins search for the other they unwittingly find themselves in the same city on the same day.

 

"I to the world am like a drop of water 

That in the ocean seeks another drop,"

 

A magical and comically entwined tale of mistaken identity follows merchants, masters, parents, servants and a long-suffering wife as it plays itself out over the course of one hectic day. This riotous rollercoaster of a comedy will keep you guessing and laughing until its joyous conclusion.

 

“I see two husbands, or my eyes deceive me.”

 

Bring a picnic (chairs are provided) and spend a great evening watching this funny, magical and fast-paced production of one of Shakespeare’s best comedies. Performed in the open air, by an all male cast with Elizabethan costumes, music and dance.
