First Encounters with Shakespeare – The Comedy of Errors at Springhead Primary School

Thursday 6 December 2018

Imagine arriving somewhere new, only to find that everyone there already seems to know who you are. When Antipholus arrives in Ephesus in search of his family, he gets a little more than he bargained for. Strangers say hello as if they’ve known him for years, people give him expensive jewellery and someone rather odd seems to think they are married.

Two sets of identical twins later, everyone is very confused…

Young performers from across the country join a professional cast in this unique collaboration between the RSC, our Regional Theatre Partners and Associate Schools.

First Encounters with Shakespeare: The Comedy of Errors is a twin-tastic 90 minutes of comic confusion and mistaken identity aimed at 7 to 13 year olds, but hugely entertaining whatever your age.

PLEASE NOTE: This performance will be held at Springhead Primary School at 7.00pm.
Tickets: £5 each
