Find out more about the cast of The Comedy of Errors as they answer this holiday related questionnaire.

We have been partners with the Royal Shakespeare Company for a couple of years now and have sponsored various shows and events that they have hosted. (Read more about our partnerships) Which is why we thought it would be a great idea to learn a little more about the cast and their preferences when it comes to holidays. So we sent them over a few questions for them to answer which you can find below. But before we get into the questions here is a quick rundown of what The Comedy of Errors is about:

These are strange times. Confusion and uncertainty everywhere.

A father ends up in the wrong country on the wrong day as a government makes hasty proclamations about travel. A lonely son, while searching for his brother, loses himself. Across town a wife starts to realise her husband is not the man she thought he was (but rather likes it). Will anything ever be the same again?

Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, a fairytale farce of everyday miracles, mistaken identity and double vision, is directed by comedy master Phillip Breen (The Provoked Wife 2019, The Hypocrite 2017).

Both. But only eat out if anywhere is a destination eatery. Coming from a family of hoteliers I get really annoyed when UK restaurants get it wrong, so recommendations from locals and TripAdvisor are a big player here.
