The Comedy of Errors
November 2 @ 8:00 pm
Direct from the Blackfriars Playhouse, the American Shakespeare Center (ASC) on Tour elevates Roman comedy to dizzying heights and delivers a rollicking farce, in Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors. Two long-separated twins, their two tricky servants (also twins), a jealous wife, and her lovelorn sister romp through this fast-paced comedy. Filled with mistaken identities and slapstick humor, The Comedy of Errors will have audiences laughing from the first confusion to the last.
ASC on Tour invites audiences to enjoy shows that are produced as Shakespeare’s company performed them – surrounded by audience members who share the same light with the actors, each of whom play multiple roles. This highly interactive style allows ASC on Tour to forge a sense of community between performers and audience rarely found in theatre today!

“SHAMELESSLY ENTERTAINING” –Washington Post
“I’ve been basking in the reflected glow of your success here all afternoon and evening. Student after student, teacher after teacher, has told me how much they enjoyed and appreciated your company’s performance … Students and faculty alike have also commended the energy, the creativity, and the professionalism of the entire production. But most of all I’ve heard praise for the performances … Personally, I couldn’t be happier.” – English Department Chair at Roxbury Latin School
