Othello

 

Shakespeare’s “Othello” is a tragedy of a deception taken a step too far.  After the high-ranking general Othello bypasses Iago for a promotion, the cunning manipulator enacts his revenge.  By playing on the Moor’s insecurities, Iago paints a false vision of Othello’s faithful wife Desdemona which leads to a murderous fit of jealousy.

The Comedy of Errors

 

Two sets of long lost twins unknowingly cross paths and set the stage for an evening of mistaken identity, mixed up confusion, and mayhem! This comic master piece is full of slapstick and sight gags, puns and pratfalls. Keeping track of which twin is which is only half the fun, as Shakespeare also stacks the deck with some of his most outrageous characters, including a jealous wife, a seductive courtesan, a hapless old man seeking his sons, a zany conjurer attempting an exorcism, and even a nun who’s not all she seems to be!
