In Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, two travelers arrive in Ephesus, searching for their long-lost twins. Chaos and confusion ensue, as the characters struggle to piece together the truth.

The Comedy of Errors shows many characters choosing violence or a verbal attack when faced with conflict of confusion. How would things change if the characters stopped, took a breath, and thought before they reacted? We have a choice in how we respond when the going gets tough—and this play highlights plenty of those moments of choice.

Performance

The Comedy of Errors was rehearsed and filmed with a small cast and rigorous safety protocols in our home theatre—the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre—to share with you and your students. The production is similar to what we would have performed live at your school but can be delivered digitally. We will share a link and password with you and your team 1-2 weeks prior to your scheduled workshops so that everyone can watch on a flexible schedule.

Workshops
Our actors will facilitate real-time, interactive, virtual workshops with your students who can participate individually from home or in group, in-person classrooms. Workshops will focus on moments of conflict within the play and use roleplay scenarios from the play to practice creative alternatives to violence.

A pre-recorded version of the workshop will be made available as a backup in case of technical barriers.

Pricing

Packages begin at $200.00, with subsidy funding available thanks to generous sponsors. Please let us know what your school’s budget can support.
