The Comedy of Errors opens April 14, 2011, on the Waller Hall Mainstage in the IUP Performing Arts Center.
The Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare’s most farcical and accessible of comedies. Two sets of identical twins, separated at birth, unknowingly end up in the same town. Confusion runs rampant in this bawdy story as each is mistaken for the other by wives, mistresses, business partners, and the authorities.
In this production, the mysterious and exotic quality of Shakespeare’s original location, Ephesus, is transported to the sultry, tropical glamour of Havana in the 1950s.
This production contains situations which may not be suitable for younger children.
Tickets available online and at the Hadley Union Building (Pratt Drive) starting Monday, March 28, 2011; Reg $14, Disc $12, I-card $8.
