Dateline: October 24, 2019
The Athenian Players invite you to join them as they present a hilarious tale of confusion and “double vision”. In their Fall 2019 performance of The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare, two sets of identical twins who were accidentally separated at birth happen to cross paths, setting off a series of wild mishaps caused by mistaken identity. One of Shakespeare’s earliest plays, The Comedy of Errors is his shortest and most farcical comedy.
Directed by Dr. Hugh Long, the play will run from November 14-16 and November 21-23. Performances will be held at 7:30 pm on November 14, 15, 16, 21, 22 and a special 2:00 pm matinee performance will take place on November 23. Tickets are on sale now.
