'The Comedy of Errors'
It was so lovely to welcome back live audiences after all the livestreaming of the previous year and the production of 'The Comedy of Errors' was a real treat! Duke Solinus and Duchess Solina invited everyone to their cabaret bar, Club Ephesus, for an evening of music, mayhem, mistaken identity, mirth, mild violence, merriment and much, much more. The audience were seated around tables supping refreshments whilst being regaled by the impressively professional club band, The Tempests, with songs such as 'Me and My Shadow', 'Witchcraft' and 'Son of a Preacher Man' performed by renowned singers Juliet Romeo, Ophelia De'Ville and Lady Emilia and the Singing Abbesses.
With lots of action taking place in and around the audience, it was a really wonderful experience overall and the plot was genuinely funny but easy to follow, despite the various complications surrounding two sets of identical twins separated at birth who end up in the same town at the same time on the same day. With so many entrances and exits, the cast must have been exhausted by the final show (especially the twin Dromios who must have run a marathon each night!) but you would not have realised this by their performances which were full of character, energy and flair. As Balthasar stated in Act 3, Scene 1, 'small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast' and this production was just that - a perfect way to see in the Easter holidays.
Well done to all those involved - it was a real triumph.
