The Comedy of Errors is Shakespeare's shortest play and one of his most farcical comedies. Set in Silver Screen Hollywood, slapstick comedy abounds with puns and wordplay in a way that only The Bard could provide! UD’s The Comedy of Errors will be an active stage reading with actors onstage sitting on chairs or stools the entire time, as per normal stage readings. However, the actors will be in costume and they will be downstage center to act out a few scenes.

The performances are free and open to the public. No ticket is required.
