Imagine arriving somewhere new, only to find that everyone there already seems to know who you are. When Antipholus arrives in Ephesus in search of his family, he gets a little more than he bargained for. Strangers say hello as if they’ve known him for years, people give him expensive jewellery and a rather odd woman seems to think she’s his wife.

Two sets of identical twins later, everyone is very confused…

Young performers from across the country join a professional cast in this unique collaboration between the RSC, our Regional Theatre Partners and Associate Schools.

First Encounters with Shakespeare: The Comedy of Errors is a twin-tastic 90 minutes of comic confusion and mistaken identity aimed at 7 to 13 year olds, but hugely entertaining whatever your age.

Touring to schools and theatres across England
