The Comedy of Errors at NCRT Theatre School

Aug 1 - Aug 3, 2019

The Theatre School at North Coast Rep presents for FREE at three different outdoor venues in three different cities William Shakespeare’s THE COMEDY OF ERRORS. The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus and his servant, Dromio, both of Syracuse arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their long lost twins, who go by the same names! 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. Fast-paced comedy fun for all ages.
