The Comedy of Errors

Shakespeare’s brilliant farce of mistaken identity and slap-stick frivolity is set in the superb classical setting of Downing College. Antipholus (of Ephesus), with his servant Dromio, think their twin brothers (also called Antipholus and Dromio) have been drowned at sea many years earlier. But Antipholus (of Syracuse), with his servant Dromio, come ashore, with neither knowing the other exists. The locals constantly confuse the pairs (even including Antipholus’ wife!) and the comedy of errors ensues. Don’t miss this fast-paced and sparkling production.

Richard III

Just a few years ago, some 500 years after his death, the remains of Richard, Duke of Gloucester (later Richard III) were discovered buried under a car park in Leicester. This production, set in the stunning gardens of St John’s College, steps back in time to re-tell his remarkable story . Malicious, power-hungry, and bitter about his physical deformity, Richard begins to aspire secretly to the throne—and is prepared to kill anyone he must in order to become king. This is Shakespeare’s masterpiece of manipulation, deceit, and political intrigue.
