About The Comedy of Errors

When two sets of identical twins separated at birth are brought to the same town by circumstance, mistaken identities abound! Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their twin brothers, Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus. When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, the result is a series of wildly comical mishaps which challenge the notion of truly knowing one’s friend, spouse, neighbour and self!

Meet the Fools – Our Cast and Crew

Directed by Catriona Leger, this season’s case includes Warren Bain, Al Connors, Scott Florence, Gabrielle Lazarovitz, Geoff McBride, Katie Ryerson.  Featuring costume design by Vanessa Imeson and set design by David Benedict Brown.

Do good things really come in pairs? Will the real Antipholous please stand up? Double the trouble means double the fun in The Comedy of. Bring a lawn chair or blanket, bug spray and your sense of humour.  Pass-the-hat donations are collected at the end of the performances and can be submitted in the form of cash or check. More information and a detailed park schedule can be found at www.fools.ca or by phoning 613-863-7529.
