The Comedy of Errors

By William Shakespeare, Directed by Denise Burson Freestone

“How many fond fools serve mad jealousy!” - William Shakespeare

Not one but two sets of long-separated twins form a springboard for confusion, slapstick, and surprise as a family that once was lost now is found. Shakespeare’s farcical onslaught of mistaken identities, fateful romance, and family reunions has all the ingredients for theatrical chaos. By far Shakespeare’s zaniest comedy! It’s time for adventure in the park and under the stars. Walk in, bike in, or drive in! Featuring nightly food trucks.
