THE BOMB-ITTY OF ERRORS
Co-produced by Mark Rubinstein
West End rund at the New Ambassadors Theatre
Opened April 2003.  Developed by Andy Goldberg
'You'll be enchanted' - The Telegraph

Fusing classic theatre with the original live beats of an onstage DJ, The Bomb-itty of Errors is a unique and bold hip-hop spin on Shakespeare’s farcical tale of mistaken identities.

Inspired by Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors, Bomb-itty inventively traces the chaotic family history of two sets of male twins who are put up for adoption by their struggling hip-hop parents. After the boy’s father is arrested for small-time drug dealing, their mother falls apart and splits the boys up between two foster homes and disappears. When the four boys – who look identical - meet up 20 years later, explosive confusion follows: wives, sisters, bill collectors, street hustlers, girlfriends, townspeople, jewellers and ladies of the night are thrown into a tailspin of total bewilderment with outrageous results.
