The Comedy of Errors

William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors unfolds in Ephesus, a dangerous place where non-conformity is discouraged and the citizens teeter on the brink of revolt. Set in a moment in a time that might have been...or may still yet be...we follow Antipholus and Dromio of Syracuse, the city at war with Ephesus, on an adventerous quest to find their long-lost twins. This Shakespearean comedy is tangled with twists & turns, families seeking reunification, and mistaken identities. The Comedy of Errors is directed by John Seibert and is EMU Theatre's first venture back to in-person performances since March of 2020. We ask for your patience with any new protocols & procedures, including wearing masks, social distancing and "Text to Park/Snap to Park" payment for parking.
