Reasons for trip

This was another ‘live performance’ shown on local cinema screen at Theatr Mwldan in Cardigan. Shakespeare’s “The comedy of Errors” was the last of screenings from the Globe theatre in London for 2015 and a brilliant way to end the series.

As the brochure says, when estranged twin brothers with the same name plus estranged twin servants with the same name appear in the same town “you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos”. When one Antipholus arrives in town, he is amazed at the hospitality he receives, including money owed to him, a splendid gold chain necklace, and an extremely enthusiastic greeting from his ‘wife’ who drags him in for food and a passionate afternoon! His brother Antipholus, unfortunately, is constantly being hounded for payment for the necklace and is locked out of his own house by his brother’s servant.

It all ends happily of course, with the unmarried brother in love with the wife of the other, due payments made for the necklace and release from prison, and their father reunited with them and his wife who was now an Abbess…yes, very fortunate all round I think! Excellent performances by everyone, especially the twin servants called Dromio and, of course, the audience at the Globe. This has to be one of the best ways to see a live performance as you get the atmosphere from it being on stage plus close-up camera shots of details you miss when in the audience. A great Shakespeare play full of fun and brilliant gags.

Tickets were £11.50 each as senior citizen.
