The Comedy of Errors is a brilliant piece of theatrical mechanism, a story of mounting confusion involving two pairs of twins. But it also explores the relations between lovers and between husband and wife, and ends with the warmth and reconciliation of a multiple family reunion. This new edition is the Propeller Shakespeare Theatre Co edition which includes the Propeller edit of the text, accompanied by an introduction to the text and Propeller's process, with articles on table features specific to the performed production
Propeller is an all-male Shakespeare company which mixes a rigorous approach to the text with a modern physical aesthetic. They look for as many ways as possible to inform the physical life of the production with the poetry of the text, giving as much control as possible to the actor in telling the story. Over the last fifteen years, Propeller has performed Shakespeare in over twenty two countries. In 2011 Propeller reached nearly one hundred thousand people worldwide.
