The Kyogen of Errors takes Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors—the classic tale of two pairs of twins separated at birth—and stages it in the rich comic traditions of Japanese Kyogen. As The Bard’s usual misunderstandings and mistaken identities come thick and fast, Kyogen master Mansai Normura dons and whips off masks at breakneck speed to push the storyline of mistaken identity to absurd limits. This brilliant, high-energy production illustrates Shakespeare's universal appeal through the lens of Japanese stage tradition by creating a synthesis of pure theatrical magic.
