Shakespeare with Oddsocks

The Derbyshire-based Oddsocks theatre company is back with a production of The Comedy Of Errors by William Shakespeare.

The show can be seen at Derby Theatre from July 22-24.

In The Comedy of Errors, a servant and master from far off Syracuse arrive in Ephesus in search of their long-lost twin brothers.

In no time at all they are trapped in a terrifying chain of chaotic events.

Tormented by a wild wife and a moody mistress, challenged by a crazy jeweller, and damned by a demonic doctor, the terrified twosome run headlong into a climactic happy ending which defies all probability.

This is a summer Turkish delight not to be missed from one of the most entertaining and innovative local companies around.

Later in the summer, Derby Theatre hosts a production of Harold Pinter’s play Betrayal, from September 5-7.

The play will be presented by London Classic Theatre.

Emma is married to Robert, a publisher. But for seven years, she has been having an affair with Jerry, a literary agent and Robert’s best friend.

The play is told in reverse, beginning with the end of the affair.
