The Comedy of Errors
July 28, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$10.00
Shakespeare comes to Marlinton! The Opera House is excited to welcome Vintage Theatre Company’s Shakespeare troupe, The Rustic Mechanicals, presenting The Comedy of Errors.
Two sets of identical twins spell double trouble in Shakespeare’s zaniest comedy. Who would have guessed that Antipholus’ long-lost identical twin had just arrived in town? Or that his servant, Dromio, also has a newly-landed identical twin? Sheer confusion and delightful nonsense reign in Shakespeare’s most madcap comedy, culminating in a series of misunderstandings that brings everyone to the brink of hysteria.
Founded by Celi Oliveto in the summer of 2014, The Rustic Mechanicals are the only troupe of actors in West Virginia dedicated to touring the works of William Shakespeare and other classical playwrights. The Mechanicals tour three shows annually focusing on making Shakespeare’s plays accessible to modern audiences by utilizing interesting production concepts, dynamic staging, and extreme casting.
