    Most performances of this production of The Comedy of Errors took place in schools. The company took over entire halls with the audience of school-children sitting around three sides of the playing space. The action took place anywhere, including - as shown here - among the children.

    At the start of The Comedy of Errors, Egeon describes how he and his wife, his twin sons and their twin servants came to be separated by a shipwreck. In this production, the company acted out this story while Egeon spoke, showing the twins tied together. As is conventional in The Comedy of Errors, the Antipholus and Dromio twins wore identical costumes so the audience could easily identify them.
