Merry War Theatre Group offers a fun romp through William Shakespeare’s “The Comedy of Errors.” This is the fourth annual production on the steps of the Lear Theater exploring the tales of Shakespeare for all to see.

“The Comedy of Errors” is one of Shakespeare’s earliest works so some of the language may seem a bit archaic, but this group of actors is magic when it comes to presentation.

This is a free production (suggested $5 donation) in the park-like setting of the front yard and steps of the Lear Theater, one of the few events that take place at the Reno landmark.

I found this mix of Shakespeare and carnival to be pure entertainment. It is easy to see that the players are having fun and that fun is contagious.

So, bring your blankets and a picnic to the Lear Theater and enjoy an evening of fun. “The Comedy of Errors” plays through June 25.
