The Comedy of Errors



  “We came into the world brother and brother, And now, let’s go in hand and hand, not one before the other.”

Two sets of twins are separated when young. Later, they find themselves in the same town. Their antics add up to an uproarious farce of mistaken identity, presented under the stars on our outdoor stage in Ellicott City — in the picnic-friendly Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park. Come see The Comedy of Errors and discover why the Baltimore Business Journal cited Chesapeake Shakespeare Company-in-the-Ruins among the area’s top tourist attractions. Gates open 90 minutes before the show. Directed by Scott Alan Small, a CSC Associate Artistic Director. Photos by Teresa Castracane.
