Shakespeare at the Estate ‘Comedy of Errors’
July 14, 2015 @ 8:30 pm - July 25, 2015 @ 8:30 pm$15 – $25
One of Shakespeare’s earliest and most vibrant comedies, Comedy of Errors, is a zany, madcap romp of mistaken identities. Take two pairs of identical twins, a jealous wife and her love-struck sister, a greedy merchant, a father whose head will be chopped off at sunset, a dim-witted courtesan, a stolen necklace, one angry nun, a greasy kitchen wench and an exorcist. Add in Shakespeare’s brilliant, sparkling language, spiced up with musical surprises, and the result is a concoction of delightful lunacy and farcical delirium. Bring your lawn chair or blanket, arrive early and enjoy an Elizabethan Festival, featuring comedy, music, dancing, performers and a special appearance by the King and Queen. On the outdoor stage at the Emlen Physick Estate.
