Talented young director Blanche McIntyre (responsible for The Seagull, and Ciphers) brings a new production of The Comedy of Errors to Shakespeare's Globe from 30th August 2014. Basing his plot on a farce by Plautus, Shakespeare caps the mayhem of his Roman original to build up a hectic tale of violent cross-purposes, furious slapstick and social nightmare. It's a busy year for McIntyre, who won best director at the 2013 TMA UK theatre awards for her modern take on The Seagull for Headlong, and whose current projects include Ciphers and a film script for Stephen Fry's novel The Hippopotamus.

 

About Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

This replica of the Shakespeare's 16th century theatre, reconstructed just 200 yards from its original site, is the brainchild of American actor and director Sam Wanamaker. Built in wood and thatch, using techniques from 400 years ago, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre opened in 1996. More about Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
