Napa Valley will be bringing to life one of William Shakespeare’s earliest works, The Comedy of Errors August 15-September 1, 2013. This cheeky adaptation is sure to tickle your funny bone, as Tim Kniffin in the role of Antipholus of Syracuse, and Nick Joy as Antipholus of Ephesus. With producion assistance from Shakespeare Napa Valley, in association with Napa Valley College Director Jennifer King has assembled a spectacular cast that is sure to pull your heart strings, and possibly even pull you into the action.
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.
