THE COMEDY OF ERRORS
by William Shakespeare
at Good Company Players’ 2nd Space Theatre
Opening August 21st at GCP’s 2nd Space Theatre, Good Company Players presents William Shakespeare’s brilliant farce, The Comedy of Errors. In this merry mix-up by the Bard, two sets of identical twins are separated as children in a shipwreck – they land on far distant shores, not knowing what happened to the others. Once grown, Antipholus of Syracuse (MATTHEW RUDOLF SCHILTZ) and his servant Dromio (DANIELLE VALDIVIA) travel to Ephesus and are mistaken for their long-lost twin brothers, Antipholus and Dromio of Ephesus (KEN STOCKS and BRIANNE JANAE VOGT). When they meet by accident as adults, the possibilities are endless: mistaken identities, near-seductions, false arrests, and wild accusations of adultery, larceny, and insanity are flung about with wild abandon.
Directed by J. DANIEL HERRING, this production runs at Good Company Players’ 2nd Space Theatre August 21st – October 12th, 2014 and boasts a cast of GCP veterans and newcomers including HENRY MONTELONGO, PATRICK ALLAN TROMBORG, ERICA RIGGS, CHARLES MONTOYA, NIKKI PUREWAL, BROOKE AIELLO, BENJAMIN GEDDERT, HEATHER RULE, and KEVIN CARILLO.
The Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare’s earliest plays and his shortest script, brimming with slapstick comedy, clever puns, and word play. Written between 1589 and 1595, The Comedy of Errors borrows heavily from The Menaechmi by Plautus, a Roman playwright. Plautus lived between 254 BC and 184 BC and, in his turn, gleaned his comedies from the works of the ancient Greeks.
