The Comedy of Errors – July 2010

Written by: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Peter Kelly
Dates: July 21st-24th & 27th-31st, 2010

Venue: Studio Theatre

Some years before the play begins, a
Syracuse merchant becomes the father of identical twin sons. He also
buys indentical twin servants.

During a stormy sea crossing, the family
is ripped asunder – each twin being separated, each with a twin
servant. The merchant, thinking he has lost one of his twins, names the
“surviving” twin after him – and the same for the servant!

As the play begins, Syracuse and Ephesus
are at war – the merchant comes to Ephesus searching for the lost twin
(then being arrested and sentenced to death for being from Syracuse),
unaware that his son, Antipholus and Dromio, the servant have also come
looking.

Confusion ensues in Ephesus….

Shakespeare’s beautiful comic play has entertained for centuries, and I expect it to do so again!
