Welcome to The Company
The Company is an amateur theatre group with members across Sheffield and South Yorkshire. We have been established for over a decade and have developed a reputation for high quality theatre worthy of the professional stage. We perform three plays a year at The University of Sheffield’s Drama Studio, a renowned intimate theatre venue. Our members are encouraged to give creative input at all stages of production including script writing, set design, stage management, directing and acting.
The Comedy of Errors by William
12 - 15th June 2013 in the Drama
Studio and a performance at the Dore Festival in July.
A wretched soul, bruis'd with adversity,
We bid be quiet, when we hear it cry;
But, were we burden'd with like weight of pain,
As much or more we should ourselves complain.
This is the story of two sets of identical twins that were
accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of
Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of
their twin brothers, Antipholus of Ephesus and his
servant, Dromio of Ephesus. When the Syracusans encounter
the friends and families of their twins, a series of wild
mishaps based on mistaken identities lead to
wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, the arrest of Antipholus of
Ephesus, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and demonic possession.
