The Comedy of Errors: Insider's Guide



The Comedy of Errors has entertained audiences for centuries. It has everything a good comedy needs: mistaken identity, slapstick, and zany characters.

These videos highlight the play's themes, characters, and plot, perfect for students encountering the play for the first time or listeners seeking a refresher course.




The Insider's Guide series is a project of Folger Education, Robert G. Young, Director, and Folger External Relations, Garland Scott, Head.

Executive Producers: Heather Daniels, Mark Fastoso

Writers: Amy Arden, Steven Galbraith

Host: Casey Kaleba

Song Performed by: Kelvin Davis


Special thanks to Folger Theatre, Janet Alexander Griffin, Artistic Producer, and the featured artists from its 2011 production of The Comedy of Errors, directed by Aaron Posner.
