Trivia

The entire production takes place on a stylised set, the floor of which is a giant map of the region, shown in its entirety in the opening and closing aerial shots; all of the main locations (the Porpentine, the Abbey, the Phoenix, the market etc.) are located in a circular pattern around the centre map.

Funny and cute
24 December 2019 | by AngelofMusic1998See all my reviews

The Comedy of Errors is not among my favorite Shakespeare plays and not even among his comedies.I personally do think that some of the comedoes have better stories.Sets and costume look nice ,but the beginning drags on a bit too much.The cast does a good job,especially the men playing the twins.A very funny play and not too long,so why not watch it if you have the time.Good TV movie 7/10
