Comedy of Errors

The ARTS at Marks Garage

July 28 - August 6, 2017

July 28, 29, August 2, 3, 5 at 7:30pm, and July 30, August 6 at 3:30pm

The Hawaii Shakespeare Festival (HSF) celebrates its sixteenth season with a festival-within-a-festival at the newly remodeled The ARTS at Marks Garage. The season kicks off with two of Shakespeare’s most accessible plays, Romeo and Juliet, opening July 14, and Comedy of Errors, opening July 28, and concludes with a Chekhov mini-festival featuring Seagull, Bear and Avenger, opening August 11. Bear and Avenger will be free and open to the public.

UH Manoa MFA alum Shirley Kagan returns after twenty years as a theatre educator and director on the mainland to guest direct Comedy of Errors, Shakespeare's shortest and silliest play of lost twins and mistaken identity. Kagan sets the mayhem in "the bustling din of 1920s Ephesus (which looks a lot like New York)." Comedy stars Connor Lawhornand Dan Connell as Antipholus of Ephesus and Syracuse, with Nygell Halvorson and Kirk Lapilio as the twin Dromios.
