The Comedy of Errors

The Comedy of Errors

by William Shakespeare

Autumn tour 2013 – The Complete Works & Italia Conti

After the success of last years ‘As you like it’ we have created another fantastic Shakespeare play for the new academic year in conjunction with Italia Conti Academy.  This year we are very excited to announce that we are staging ‘The Comedy of Errors’ and we will be performing it across schools in London and the surrounding areas.

The performances will be taking place from Monday 30th September – Friday 4th October with an AM performance starting at 9.30 and a PM performance starting a 1.30 (NB there is some flexibility with this). The performance will last for approximately 1hr 30 mins including a Q&A session at the end.

This is a wonderful opportunity for students to experience high-quality, high-energy, live Shakespeare performed in their own school. The play has been adapted and abridged to suit student audiences, and we receive very positive feedback for these performances year after year. Our version of the play is set in the 1920′s and incorporates live music and dance, all performed against a beautiful art-deco style backdrop.

The performance is suitable for all year groups, and can be performed for any audience size from one class to a whole year group.

Please call the office on 020 7 377 0280 or email admin@tcw.org.uk for more details or to book!

The Memory Palace Performance – A weird and wonderful night to remember at the V&A

On 15th August 2013 TCW ran an evening of interactive performance at the V&A on behalf of Mastercard Priceless London events.

We employed around 40 actors, musicians, dancers and circus performers for what was most probably our largest-scale creative project to date, and thanks to the hard work and incredible talent of all those involved, the night was a massive success!

The premise for the performance was inspired by the book and current exhibition at the V&A entitled ‘The Memory Palace‘. The text, written by Hari Kunzru, depicts a world in which the ability to remember has been eradicated as a result of a magnetic storm, and those precious few who are still able to remember the past have been incarcerated by the oppressive government.

We decided to set our performance in a world where this government has been overthrown, and the civilians are coming together to remember and celebrate the past together. The performance was promenade in nature, as we were lucky enough to be given permission to roam freely around the museum!

We wrote 4 different bespoke scripts, gave improvisation-based workshops for our actors in preparation, employed professional dancers, musicians and circus performers, and provided all of the costumes for the performance… Phew! A video of the night’s weird and wonderful shenanigans is on the way – so make sure to watch this space!

We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved, including The Big Group (who commissioned us for the entertainment), Event Concept (who ran the production and tech on the night) and of course the Victoria and Albert Museum. It certainly was a memorable night!
