The Comedy of Errors @ St Peter's Square

 

 

A good time is offered to twins who will be able to buy two for the price of one twin tickets for the Festival Players' performance of The Comedy of Errors in St. Peter's Square, Hammersmith on 12th/13th July.

In Shakespeare's funniest farce two sets of identical twins, separated from birth, end up in the same town on the same day creating an hilarious plot of intrigue, confusion and mistaken identities. Audiences can expect to laugh from beginning to end!

With a cast of seven, the company is quite used to doubling up on parts.
Petros Emanuel who plays the Antipholus twins is not phased at playing himself and his double. "They are different characters. Syracuse is a bit melancholy and Ephesus is more feisty, and a bit of a ladies' man."

Peter Gardiner who plays the Dromio twins says he will be shouting to himself from one side of the stage and
answering himself back from the other. "I will be talking to myself on stage. Jumping from one space to another and changing characters in the jump is a real comic challenge."

Perhaps the audience will have an even bigger challenge trying to spot the difference!

Jasmine Darke who plays feisty Adriana says she likes women who have something to say for themselves. She has played a waitress in Eastenders and a witch in Macbeth, but her great love is Pantomime with its carnival atmosphere.

Festival Player fans will remember Martin Tomms brilliant Caliban in The Tempest and his Fluellen in Henry V. He's back this year - guess what? Playing three parts!

This summer's production promises to be great fun for all the family.
