Albany, NY – Antipholus of Ephesus is having a really bad day. First his faithful servant Dromio of Ephesus reports on strange requests he never made, and then his wife barricades him out of his mansion. Before long, the police are after him, and an overzealous exorcist is flinging holy water in his face. Could it be that dark supernatural forces are at work? Or could it be that Antipholus of Syracuse, his long-lost twin brother, has arrived in town with his own servant Dromio–who also happens to be the twin of his brother’s servant–and is causing all sorts of mayhem around town! Is your head spinning yet? Don’t worry, it’s all part of the fun in Confetti Stage’s upcoming production of The Comedy of Errors, the show widely believed to be the first play written by William Shakespeare! Presented in the style and of classic slapstick comedy, this tale of the bard is sure to have audiences laughing hard! As a special treat for the community, performances on Sunday, August 7th at 2PM and Thursday, August 11th at 7:30PM will be free to everyone! There will be light refreshments available to purchase at all performances. Students and children 12 and under get in for just $8!
