SHAKESPEARE NAPA VALLEY
SUMMER 2015

The Comedy of Errors
by William Shakespeare  Directed by Jennifer King
June 12-14 and 19-21, 2015 at 7pm

With two sets of twins unaware the other exists, heavy mix-ups and witty dialogue tell the story. The hilarity begins when both sets of twins are shipwrecked as infants, and the father can only save one of each set. Years later, one Antipholus and one Dromio arrive in Ephesus in search of their long-lost brothers only to find that everyone there seems a little odd... Dromio of Ephesus is the slave of Antipholus of Ephesus, and Dromio of Syracuse is the slave of Antipholus of Syracuse. Farcical mix-ups occur when all the twins converge in Ephesus. Comedic chaos gives way to clarity and a baffling day on the set makes for a joyous conclusion to The Comedy of Errors.
