The 2020 Free For All will feature a remount of Alan Paul’s 2018 production of The Comedy of Errors. Check back for information on tickets later this spring.
Two sets of twins, each with the same name—what could go wrong? Everything, apparently. Leave logic behind and delight in the confusion of Shakespeare’s beloved comedy, where servants misplace their masters, wives overlook their husbands, and sons forget their fathers. The blunders double, triple and cube until chaos reigns—and everyone is pretty sure that everyone else is completely insane. With a cast of beloved STC performers, Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul (Camelot; Peter Pan and Wendy) brings the madcap world of The Comedy of Errors to life in all its antic, anarchic glory.
