From the Back Cover:

Informative, thought-provoking and humane.' - Dr Colin Burrow, University of Oxford
 
From the Royal Shakespeare Company - a fresh new edition of Shakespeare's anarchic comedy

THIS EDITION INCLUDES:
· An illuminating introduction to The Comedy of Errors by award-winning scholar Jonathan Bate

The most enjoyable way to understand a Shakespeare play is to see it or participate in it. This unique edition presents a historical overview of The Comedy of Errors in performance, recommends film versions, takes a detailed look at specific productions and includes interviews with three leading directors – Paul Hunter, Nancy Meckler and Tim Supple – so that we may get a sense of the extraordinary variety of interpretations that are possible, a variety that gives Shakespeare his unique capacity to be reinvented and made 'our contemporary' four centuries after his death.

Ideal for students, theatre-goers, actors and general readers, the RSC Shakespeare plays offer an accessible and contemporary approach to reading and rediscovering Shakespeare's works for the twenty-first century.
