Unbeknownst to them two sets of twins get separated at birth. When they all find themselves in the same city more than 20 years later zany chaos ensues of mistaken identity, misunderstandings, mayhem, and mixups. A fan favorite, the Comedy of Errors remains one of Shakespeare’s funniest comedies. Directed by Erin Day.
Backyard Bard was born out of a desire to bring Shakespeare to smaller parks and new audiences in underserved neighborhoods. The company presents two stripped-down productions of Shakespeare’s plays, each one hour long, and both performed by a small ensemble of versatile actors. (Sundays are double-feature days, with both plays performed.)
Free, non-ticketed event; donations welcomed. Info and schedule here.
