PRESENTED BY THE CLASSICAL ACTING ACADEMY
Directed by Rosemary Hay
AUG. 3 – AUG. 21
Wednesdays through Saturdays 7pm; Sundays 2pm (No showings on Monday and Tuesday)
One of Shakespeare’s
earliest and most vibrant comedies, The Comedy of Errors is a whirlwind
adventure of mistaken identities that ends in the reconciliation of a family
that has been torn apart by a shipwreck.
Take two pairs of
identical twins, one jealous wife, her demure sister, a necklace, a dinner
engagement, an exorcism, a kitchen wench and a courtesan, and put them all in
the colorful and festive city of Ephesus, tourist resort on the
Mediterranean. Add in Shakespeare’s
brilliant, sparkling language and the result is a concoction of delightful
lunacy and farcical delirium.
Set in the exuberant, exciting and vivid era of the
1960’s, The Comedy of Errors explores and celebrates the timeless human
experiences of the discovery of self and the nature of identity.
