Welcome to a world devoted to the absurd comedy of our endless, human errors! On Saturdays this winter, our cleverly abridged, 75-minute production will have audience members of all ages reeling with laughter. Antipholus and his lifelong companion, Dromio, search the world over for a long-lost twin. Everywhere they go, complete strangers insist they're the best of friends. Is everyone here quite mad? Mistaken identities abound, as one bewildering day in Ephesus makes for a bewitching time in the theater. Following each performance, you are invited to stay for a discussion with the entire cast, and mingle with them in the Lobby for informal conversations and photos. This production will most be enjoyed by those ages 10 and up.
In addition to the public performances on Saturday mornings, Short Shakespeare! The Comedy of Errors will also play to more than 30,000 students during weekday Team Shakespeare matinees—engaging middle and high school students in Shakespeare through the unmatched power of live performance.
