Propeller is an all-male company that adds a comic twist to many Shakespearian classics, giving hilarious performances that are a must-see for any Shakespeare fan. Led by director Edward Hall, his two latest offerings are sure to have you rolling in the aisles. Propeller’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream has enchanted audiences around the world. In Shakespeare’s most magical play, love and illusion collide when two pairs of lovers become entangled in fairy mischief on the eve of a Royal Wedding. Dreams and reality become interchangeable and romantic chaos ensues. The Comedy of Errors also offers up some fine entertainment and is arguably Shakespeare’s smartest and most farcical play. Two sets of estranged twins, separated at birth, find themselves in the same city 25 years later with hilarious consequences. A series of mistaken identities, assumed personas, and wild mishaps bring a family crisis into heart-warming focus. Neither of these plays are to be missed!
