Shakespeare’s furiously paced comedy staged in a contemporary world into which walk three prohibited foreigners who see everything for the first time. Two sets of twins separated at birth collide in the same city without meeting for one crazy day, as multiple mistaken identities lead to confusion on a grand scale – and for no one more so than Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant Dromio who, in search of their brothers, arrive in a land entirely foreign to their distant home. To the outsiders, the buzzing metropolis appears a place of wonderment and terror where baffling gifts and unexplained hostilities abound. Consistently recognized by strangers, the visitors question their very selves as the turmoil escalates. Meanwhile, Aegeon, father to the Antipholus twins, has been captured searching for his sons and, as an illegal immigrant, is sentenced to death at sunset. Lenny Henry stars as Antipholus of Syracuse. Filmed live at the National’s Olivier Theatre and broadcast to hundreds of cinemas and performing arts venues around the world by National Theatre Live.
