Summer 2022 - The Comedy of Errors
July 14-August 14
Shakespeare Under the Stars: The Comedy of Errors
Island Stage Left’s annual summer “Shakespeare Under the Stars” returns with a splashy, hilarious production of “The Comedy of Errors” on the outdoor stage at Wold Road.
This is the only Shakespeare play that can truly be called zany. It involves two sets of identical twins who are unaware of each other’s presence in the same town. The comic confusion is as far-out as a psychedelic Peter Max poster, and Stage Left is setting the play in a 1960s fantasyland awash in color.
Set, costumes and music are all designed to let Shakespeare’s crazy-witty play blossom with humor – while, under the mayhem, a deeper story plays out, of a family split apart and long separated, but always dreaming of reunion.
Chairs are provided, but bring blankets and/or warm clothes (even parkas) for when the sun goes down.
Admission is free, donations gratefully accepted.
