The Comedy of Errors

The Theatre Company of Saugus presents The Comedy of Errors, one of William Shakespeare’s most popular plays. Performances are March 3-4-5 and 10-11-12, 2023.

The Comedy of Errors is a farce about two sets of identical twins who were separated in a shipwreck shortly after birth. Now adults, Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in the town of Ephesus, which happens to be where their long-lost twins, Antipholus of Ephesus and Dromio of Ephesus, live. When the Syracusan twins encounter the friends and families of their siblings, a series of mishaps based on mistaken identity result in wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, the arrest of the Ephesian twins, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and demonic possession.

The director of the show is Francine Davis. The stage manager is Lauren Lyon. We are please to announce the cast:

Starting with this show, we are no longer checking vaccination cards of the audience at the door, although we expect that everyone will be fully vaccinated and boostered. The audience is still required to wear masks, as social distancing is not possible inside the building. The cast and crew are vaccinated and tested for COVID prior to the performances.

We are now looking for volunteers to help with set construction and decoration, backstage work, or the front-of-house positions. If you are interested in working on the show, please contact us at tcsaugus@gmail.com. The set-build day is Saturday 18 February.
