"The Comedy of Errors," William Shakespeare's shortest play, is based on a farce by the Roman playwright, Plautus. This early play by Shakespeare is a tale of mistaken identity where two sets of twin brothers separated and lost at sea are reunited after many years, but not before hilarious run-ins with each other and mistakes over money, love and imprisonment.
The performance is directed by Jonathan Tazewell, the Thomas S. Turgeon Professor of Drama, with assistant directors Rebecca Simantov '19 and Pilar Hoye '19.
