The Comedy of Errors

I'm finally returning to the stage! After months of lockdown, theatres are now opening and I'm thrilled to announce I will be playing Duke, Balthazar and Pinch in The Comedy of Errors.
Full details below:


4 Jun - 4 Jul 2021
The Roman Theatre, St Albans

Welcome to The Phoenix Beachfront Bar, where owners Ant and Adriana serve up karaoke laced with fruity cocktail kicks. 

When Ant’s long lost twin brother washes up on shore, with his loveable but idiotic mate Dromio (who also happens to be a long lost twin) a hilarious and anarchic adventure of errors ensues. The two sets of twins plus a host of colourful characters, mysterious merchants, late night lovers, a drag queen and a nun grab the wrong end of the stick (of seaside rock) in a hilarious, helter-skelter comedy of mistaken identity, magic and mayhem, bingo and bunting, candy floss and cocktails, seagulls and slapstick – and where the Punch & Judy show might well end in a punch up.

Pull up a deckchair, grab your “Kiss Me Quick” hat and join us for a fast paced, colourful version of Shakespeare’s classic The Comedy of Errors featuring live music and lashings of sun soaked silliness. Fun-House fun for all the family under the direction of Off West End Award winner Matthew Parker who returns to direct for OVO following his 2020 ★★★★★ debut with Henry V.
