Innovative director Sean Graney reimagines Shakespeare’s funniest farce about the craziest family reunion ever. Audiences will experience the wildly entertaining tale of a man (Antipholus) and his servant (Dromio) who arrive in Ephesus while searching for their long-lost twin brothers. Everywhere they go, strangers greet them as if they’re old friends. In the end, chaos gives way to clarity in this comedy filled with mayhem and madness. The Comedy of Errors is a theatrical event full of energetic slapstick and lyrical comedy performed by six actors.
“…With only six characters playing 20 roles, The Comedy of Errors feels like a magic show: You want to know how it works, and you never quite figure it out.” – Centerstage Chicago
