Mount St. Dominic Academy Performing Arts Presents
William Shakespeare's "The Comedy of Errors"
November 11 & 12, 2022
Doris M. Byrne Performing Arts Center
The Mount’s Fall Show The Comedy of Errors is set to take the stage the second weekend in November. Our theater students have been rehearsing this school year for the production written by Shakespeare between 1589-1594. It is based on a play called Menaechmi by Plautus, which would have been a well-known story in Shakespeare’s time. The Comedy of Errors and The Tempest are the only two Shakespeare plays that observe unity of time--the entire plays occurs over the course of a day, and it is definitely Shakespeare’s most slapstick type of comedy. Although most scholars find little depth in The Comedy of Errors, many consider it to be proof that Shakespeare was a master of comedy.
