National Theatre Live: The Comedy of Errors
March 26, 2012
The Best in British theatre screenings from the UK's National Theatre continue with a new twist on an old favorite.
Shakespeare’s furiously paced comedy staged in a contemporary world into which walk three prohibited foreigners who see everything for the first time. Two sets of twins separated at birth collide in the same city without meeting for one crazy day, as multiple mistaken identities lead to confusion on a grand scale. This critically acclaimed production has been playing to packed houses at the National.
