About this event:
Yeehaw! Lean & Hungry Theater be presentin’ its very own Wild Bill Shakespeare Show, The Comedy of Errors, set in fictionalized Ephesus, a coastal Wild West town. The yarn tells of two sets of twins, one set both named Antipholus and the other both called Dromio. Their story is a real tear jerker, each twin separated from his match in a shipwreck. One Antipohlus and Dromio went to live in Syracause, while the other two went to make their way in Ephesus.
Wonderin’ about their past, the pair from Syracuse trots over to Ephesus to see what they can dig up. No twin knows he’s in the same burg as his match. That sure creates a mess of hullabaloo: from unpaid debts, to madder ‘n a hornet wives, to confused “ladies of the evenin” and quacky doctors! All the mayhem takes place in a single day and it takes the whole town to sort out the flusteration.
This one-hour adaptation will be broadcast live on WAMU 88.5 FM, Washington’s most listened to radio station. Each cast member plays multiple roles, and creates live foley sound effects.
Doors open at 5pm for Wild-West-themed pre-show entertainment including a “make your own leather bracelet” station. The performance and live broadcast begins promptly at 6 pm. Come early, bring a picnic, and enjoy the evening outdoors.
Tickets are $15 for adults, and free for children 12 and under.
