It's back! This time, even newer and even more improved. The Comedy of Errors has been a massive hit for Aquila Theatre since its first incarnation in New York in 2000. Since then, this high-powered, vibrant production has delighted audiences at the La Jolla Playhouse, the LA Shakespeare Festival, European Shakespeare festivals, and coast-to-coast in the United States.
The shrewd and inventive plot relates the story of two pairs of identical twins in the same household separated by a devastating shipwrek. But as this delightful comedy unfolds, all is not what it seems. Shakespeare's remarkable staging propels a glorious, farcical romp set in the sumptuous surroundings of the ancient city of Ephesus. Brilliant comedy abounds in this witty take of mistaken identity, assumed personas, hilarious machinations and whimsical family ties. Shakespeare expertly weaves these boisterously entertaining strands together allowing his audience to stay one step ahead of his characters and laugh heartily at the outrageous results.
