Shakespeare’s Globe is a world-renowned performing arts venue, cultural attraction and education centre located on the bank of the River Thames in London, UK. Home to the Globe Theatre and Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, we celebrate Shakespeare’s transformative impact on the world by conducting a radical theatrical experiment.
The Comedy of Errors takes one pair of estranged twin brothers (both named Antipholus), and one pair of estranged twin servants (both named Dromio) and separates them at sea. Add a dash of mistaken identity and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery, and you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos.
In Twelfth Night a shipwreck tears a family apart, twins Sebastian and Viola seek refuge in a new land. Filled with unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with subtle poetry, expressed through some of Shakespeare’s most exquisite songs.
The Comedy of Errors will show on September 20 and 21, and Twelfth Night will show on September 19 and 21.
