The Mercury Theatre announces the full cast for William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors in celebration of their 50th Anniversary. 

In Shakespeare’s screwball comedy, two sets of twins separated at birth unwittingly find themselves in the same city on the same day, leading to a string of mistaken identities and chaotic mishaps 

Creative Director Ryan McBryde says today “It’s really exciting to be able to announce a cast for The Comedy of Errors that features an actual pair of twins alongside our hugely talented players for the Bard’s very own madcap comedy! Rehearsals start next month and we’re really looking forward to creating a production set in the Golden Jazz Age, taking influences from The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Great Gatsby. The show will celebrate our 50th anniversary and will feature a brilliant score of vintage pop tracks arranged by our fabulous Musical Director Jess Dives.”
