Rising star Imara Savage takes on Shakespeare’s fresh and fast-paced The Comedy Of Errors, in an exciting co-production with State Theatre Company of South Australia.
Bell Shakespeare and State Theatre Company of South Australia present
THE COMEDY OF ERRORS
Two sets of identical twins are separated at birth when they're rescued from a shipwreck. And when they end up in the same shifty, transitory port-town of Ephesus fully grown, we join them on their bizarre journey of reconciliation. As they collide unknowingly with each other's friends and family, it's not long before this absurd tale of mistaken identity and far-fetched coincidence unfolds in chaotic hilarity.
Director Imara Savage takes us on a wild ride as she updates one of Shakespeare’s earliest comedies into the red-light district of Kings Cross from dusk till dawn. Laden with cheeky nods to popular culture, The Comedy Of Errors will have you in stitches!

'Much, much hilarity, for this is genuinely, side-splittingly funny, The Bard's script deployed perfectly but also embellished with some inspired touches... Words cannot do this remarkable production justice, it really needs to be seen. A spectacular end to what has been a brilliant Bell year.' -
'The Comedy of Errors is the best thing on stage this year so far. Beg, borrow or steal if you have to, but get yourself a ticket. 5 STARS'
'This production of The Comedy of Errors is a rumbustious and entertaining knockabout romp... 4 STARS'
- The Age
'The performances are fast, funny and assured... this comedy is brimming with invention, warmth and energy.'
- The Australian
'The Comedy of Errors is rowdy, good old-fashioned fun set in a modern Australia we perhaps wish we were a little less familiar with.' - The Guardian
'Savage and her players have produced a joyful, light and frothy comedy that's gloriously modern, confident and fabulously funny. This reviewer cannot wait to see this wonderful play again.'- Australian Stage
