After more than a year of only virtual programs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Seattle Shakespeare is returning to the parks this summer with a free Wooden O production of “The Comedy of Errors.” Starting July 23, the play will perform in 10 park venues throughout the region through Aug. 8. Seattle Shakespeare Artistic Director George Mount will direct the production.
Appearing in The Comedy of Errors are MJ Daly, Kelly Karcher, Rico Lastrapes, Kate Witt, and R. Hamilton Wright. Set design is by Craig Wollam, costume design by Jocelyne Fowler, and sound design by Robertson Witmer.
Seattle Shakespeare is dedicated to creating a safe environment for audiences and staff. Seattle Shakespeare will abide by each city and venue’s safety requirements and will require our patrons to follow those protocols as well. A full description of our most up-to-date park safety requirements can be found on the Seattle Shakespeare website.
The Comedy of Errors:
Shakespeare’s fizzy, dizzy comedy follows the mishaps and mayhem created by Antipholus and Dromio as they search for their lost family. After arriving in a new city, the two are treated like old friends … but something seems amiss. Soon the pair is thrown into a quagmire of jealous wives, stolen goods, and an enigmatic nun who holds the key to solving the riddle. As the sun starts to set the comic confusion lifts just in time to end with a loopy family reunion.
TICKETS: Wooden O performances are free and open to the public, but donations are encouraged after the show.
