Wadham College Gardens.

comedyIf you saw last year’s production of

The Tempest by the Oxford Shakespeare Company, or their hilarious and memorable Twelfth Night the year
before that, you will have high expectations of their new show, The Comedy of
Errors. And you will not be disappointed. From the very first moment when the
show bursts into life with a dance, it is full of energy, vitality and verve.
There is not a hint of reverence anywhere for this early comedy by Shakespeare –
the lines are there, yes, but transformed into a rip-roaring entertainment with
clowns, puppetry, absurd sound-effects, and cheeky visual jokes.
