Double the trouble and double the fun! Shakespeare’s fizzy, dizzy comedy follows the mishaps and mayhem created by Antipholus and Dromio as they search for their lost family. After arriving in a new city, the two are treated like old friends…but something seems amiss. Soon the pair is thrown into a quagmire of jealous wives, stolen goods, and an enigmatic nun who holds the key to solving the riddle. As the sun starts to set the comic fog lifts just in time to end with a loopy family reunion.
Playful Pandemonium. The Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare’s earliest works and one of his shortest plays. Characters romp through this fast-paced comedy that has brought laughs to audiences since it first took the stage. Two sets of twins keep the rib-tickling ruses rolling from one joke to the next.
Side-spitting summer slapstick. The high comedy antics on a summer night make this the perfect family show. The laughs fly fast in Shakespeare’s farce, so pay attention or you just might think you’re seeing double!
