Propeller - The Comedy of Errors


Wednesday 7 - Saturday 10 May 2014 Download Calendar

The Lyric


Edward Hall’s all-male company will have you rolling in the aisles and leave you breathless with disbelief. Nobody does Shakespeare like Propeller!

In Shakespeare’s smartest and most farcical play, The Comedy of Errors, two sets of estranged twins, separated at birth, find themselves in the same city 25 years later with hilarious consequences. A series of mistaken identities, assumed personas, and wild mishaps bring a family crisis – so complicated that time itself loses the plot – into heart-warming focus. Fortunately the audience is always one step ahead…
