This August, twenty students from the University of Oxford will travel to Japan to perform Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors at the prestigious Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space.

Before they depart, the company will present a run of six preview performances in the
beautiful outdoor setting of the President’s Garden in Magdalen College, Oxford.

The Comedy of Errors, one of Shakespeare’s earliest works, is a farce of mistaken identity.

Fast and funny, the play shows the confusion that unfolds as two sets of long-separated
identical twins are thrown together by chance. This fun and accessible production is set in a
fading seaside resort: uniquely British in character, but universally recognisable for its rundown seediness.

The production is directed, produced, designed, technically coordinated and performed entirely by Oxford students, but is made possible by the involvement of West End producer Thelma Holt who has a longstanding involvement in Anglo-Japanese cultural exchange.

The company will also work with RSC fight director Terry King and voice coach Margo Annett in order to ensure the highest possible standards of performance OUDS was founded in 1885 and has long held a glowing reputation as one of the foremost student drama societies in the country, if not the world, with alumni ranging from John Gielgud to Rowan Atkinson, Imogen Stubbs to Rosamund Pike.

Tickets: £7 (£5 concessions)
