A bilingual play based in a quarantine world, this version of The Comedy of Errors will feature a multilingual cast in a world of separated families coming together to pursue love over hatred.
What generates errors during a pandemic? How do we find love and connection across countries in a world that is increasingly wary of travel? What does quarantine mean for the future of actors, and how do we overcome obstacles and transform them into opportunities? This multilingual adaptation shall show audiences the broad appeal of Shakespeare’s plays and highlight the need for levity, love and connection in a world that desperately needs it.
Directed by JT Stocks, this production shall feature a wealth of multi-national artists from the UK, US, Italy, Mexico and Turkey. The show will be pre-recorded over Zoom and will be streamed from September 13th through September 30 at The Manchester Fringe Festival.
