The Comedy of Errors is one of William Shakespeare's most farcical comedies and tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth.

Antipholus of Syracuse and her servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their twin siblings, Antipholus of Ephesus and her servant, Dromio of Ephesus.

When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities lead to wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, the arrest of Antipholus of Ephesus, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and demonic possession.

Please note:

Nature provides a stunning setting for our productions. To make the most of our outdoor shows, we suggest that you consider bringing some of the following:

  • Picnic supper
  • Sweater or jacket - it's colder than you think!
  • Sunhat, sunglasses, sunscreen
  • Blanket, seat cushion, lawn chair or backrest (a limited number of back-support seat cushions are also available to rent for $2)
All outdoor shows take place weather permitting - if the weather looks iffy, a decision will be made 90 minutes before showtime and our voicemail will be updated accordingly.
