Jo Bain

Gillian English Comedy of Errors for Kids (CAN)

Shakespeare's silliest play gets even sillier with this modern take for kids! Join Gill and her two puppet friends Bip & Bop as they tell you the tale of two sets of twins tangled up in a twist of mistaken identities! Kids join in and help our heroes figure out who's who!

Comedy of Errors for Kids uses the cleverness of Shakespeare’s word play, storytelling and the magic of puppetry to take kids on a fun, interactive journey that teaches the values of communication, teamwork and co-operative problem solving!

Originally from Nova Scotia, but now based in Australia, Gillian English is a comedian, actor, and storyteller. Gillian trained in theatre and comedy at Dalhousie University, the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), and The Second City.
