The Comedy of Errors

Directed by Alex Torra

When two sets of separated-at-birth identical twin brothers end up in almost exactly the same place at almost exactly the same time, confusion is bound to break out. Add to the muddle an angry wife, a beautiful sister-in-law, a greedy courtesan, and a priest known for his excellent exorcism skills — and the result is Shakespeare’s snappiest comedy.

Directed by Pig Iron Theatre’s Alex Torra, The Comedy of Errors features Luigi Sottile, Bradley K. Wrenn, Justin Jain and Ben Camp as the twins. Marla Burkholder plays the loudly-suffering wife, with Mary Tuomanen as her charming sister. Christopher Bohan, Jess Conda, Wendy Staton, and David Sweeny take on multiple roles — and the whole cast plays original music on everything from kazoos to the kitchen sink.
