The Comedy of Errors
Arena Theater presents The Comedy of Errors, the final event of the 4 part series "National Theater Live" on Thursday March 1, 2012 at 7 PM.
Shakespeare's furiously paced comedy will be staged in a contemporary world into which walk three prohibited foreigners who see everything for the first time.
Dominic Cooke, Director of the celebrated Royal Court Theatre in London, comes to the National Theatre for the first time to direct Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors, opening in the Olivier Theatre in late November and continuing in repertoire until March 2012. Famed U.K. comedian and actor Lenny Henry makes his NT debut as Antipholus of Syracuse.
Two sets of twins separated at birth collide in the same city without meeting for one crazy day, as multiple mistaken identities lead to confusion on a grand scale. And for no one more so than Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant Dromio who, in search of their brothers, arrive in a land entirely foreign to their distant home. A buzzing metropolis, to the outsiders it appears a place of wonderment and terror, where baffling gifts and unexplained hostilities abound.
Tickets are $18, available online and at the door the night of the event. The Arena bar and snack stand will be open.
