The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare At Open Air Theatre!

The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare which is directed by Philip Franks will run at Open Air Theatre London from 24 June 2010 to 31 July 2010.

For the first time in 14 years, Shakespeare’s rollicking farce, The Comedy of Errors, makes a welcome return to the Open Air Theatre.

In this merry-go-round of mistaken identity, two sets of estranged twins find themselves unwittingly wandering through the streets of the same town, where the men are jealous, the women are furious and there’s a priceless gold chain that everyone wants.

As broken relationships are slowly pieced back together, order is restored and the final reunion is a heart-warming celebration of love and family.

Philip Franks is much in demand, both as an actor and director.

He directed Private Lives and The Heiress at the National Theatre, and as a Season Associate Director for Chichester Festival Theatre, has co-directed The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby Parts 1 & 2 (Festival Theatre, UK tour and successful runs at the Gielgud Theatre, London and Princess of Wales Theatre, Toronto) and productions of The Cherry Orchard, Collaboration/Taking Sides and Separate Tables.
