Comedy of Errors Analysis of Theater Review
For your final group writing task you’ll use everything you’ve learned about production and apply it to watching The Globe’s performance of the Comedy of Errors. We have access to this excellent performance through the Drama Online collection (which was made available in response to Covid-19).
We’ve discussed the wide range of design choices that have to be made during the show (including sound, light, costume and scenic design): Choose TWO moments from Comedy of Errors during which the design element tells you something about a character, mood, atmosphere or given circumstances. For each moment you must 1) describe what the design did and what it told you 2) Why was it effective?
You can find scenes of The Globe’s performance of the Comedy of Errors on youtube.
