Dram Tree Shakespeare presents William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors at the DREAMS Garage in downtown Wilmington, NC. The production is directed by Philadelphia based guest director, KC MacMillan. The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant Dromio arrive in the town of Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their twin brothers, a master and servant who are also called Antipholus and Dromio. A wild ride of comedy and mistaken identity ensues when the visiting folk of Syracuse are mistaken by the creditors, rulers, and, most dangerous of all, the wives of their long-lost twins. One of Shakespeare’s earliest and fast-paced plays, the production derives much of its humor from physical, slapstick comedy, sight gags, word play, puns and mistaken identities. Please note: The Sunday performance is a matinee beginning at 3pm. Call (800) 838-3006 for tickets.
