2023/24 Season – 30th Anniversary
THE COMEDY OF ERRORS
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Charles McMahon
May 16 – June 16, 2024
Come see how the story of a bereaved merchant searching for his lost son in a hostile city turns into an unrivaled comedy of mistaken identities, twins separated at birth, and love lost and won. When all of Ephesus is thrown into chaos, only the genius of Shakespeare can put it right again.
