The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare and directed by Rob Gander – Friday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 26
7:30 p.m., Redfield Studio Theatre, Church Fine Arts
Who doesn’t love a good twins-separated-at-birth story? Shakespeare’s shortest and most farcical play contains two sets of identical twins raised apart now roaming the same city by chance. Mistaken identity, misdirected seduction, witty nonsense and even demonic possession bring everyone to the brink of hysteria! A madcap comedy so definitive “comedy of errors” becomes the names of an entire genre of storytelling.
Parking on campus is free after 7 p.m. – on event evenings only and anytime on weekends – in the Brian J. Whalen Parking Complex immediately north of the Church Fine Arts Building.
