The Comedy of Errors: A perfect introduction to Shakespeare with the RSC

Introduce your family to Shakespeare with the RSC’s First Encounters with Shakespeare: The Comedy of Errors, which is coming to York from 28-30 November 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…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.

Performances will be held at York High School 28th November (01904 555502) and York Theatre Royal 29 & 30 November (to book, visit
