Popular Director Ingrid Ganley is back in the gardens! With successes such as “Mousetrap”, “Noises Off”, “Black Coffee” and “Phantom of the Opera” under her belt, Hobart’s best loved director is returning to the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens to direct Shakespeare’s “The Comedy of Errors”.

The Comedy of Errors is Shakespeare's first comedy, and definitely one of his funniest. The comedy is fast and furious, the plot gets wilder and wilder as the play moves to its climax. Done in Bollywood style this production promises plenty of colour and movement.

Pandemonium ensues when two sets of twins, separated in a shipwreck when babies, meet up twenty-five years later in the town of Ephesus. Mistaken identities create farcical confusion in one of Shakespeare's most hysterical comedies – The Comedy of Errors.

Ganley has put together a strong cast of experienced actors, Ben Harvey, Christopher Forbes, Jessica Davies, Jared Goldsmith, Luke Visentin, Tamara Bloomfield, Megan Brockie, Rob Maxwell, Sera Goldstone and Brian Andrews.

This is the 17th Shakespeare in the Gardens for Directions Theatre opening on Friday 6th February 2015 and plays Tuesday to Saturday at 7.00PM until 28 February.

Pack a picnic, bring a blanket and enjoy!
