Comedy Of Errors DVD (2014)
Shakespeare's Globe 2014 production of The Comedy of Errors filmed on the Globe stage.
Based on a farce by the Roman playwright, Plautus, The Comedy of Errors is the Bard's most madcap comedy - a work full of slapstick humour and characterisation that centres around two sets of identical twins accidentally separated at birth. Featuring Renaissance costumes as well as contemporaneous staging, Blanche McIntyre's debut production for the Globe "sparkles with wit and invention" (Whats On Stage), with standout performances from Matthew Needham ("who brings a compelling fluency to the role of Antipholus of Ephesus"), Simon Harrison as his bewildered brother and Hattie Ladbury who "elegantly articulates the lofty ideals and passions of his wife Adriana" (Evening Standard). Filmed in High Definition and true surround sound.
Spoken in Shakespeare's English.
