In William Shakespeare’s “The Comedy of Errors,” a Syracusan man and his servant run into their twin brothers in the Greek city of Ephesus. When friends and families of the twins in Ephesus mistake them for the Syracuse pair, a series of wild mishaps lead to all manner of dubious outcomes – including unjust beatings, near-seduction and arrests.
For its 13th season, SCSF will be making some modern adjustments to «The Comedy of Errors.» Ephesus becomes Venice Beach and Syracuse becomes San Diego, bringing an old story from across an ocean a little closer in time and space to Southern California audeinces. The carnival-like nature of Venice Beach will be played up with a pre-show performance of circus acts that will bleed into the main performance.
Directed by Sam Robinson, written by William Shakespeare.
