Shakespeare returns

Bainbridge Performing Arts brings Shakespeare back to the Bloedel Reserve with “The Comedy of Errors” from June 16 to July 3.

Shows from Thursday to Sunday are at 7 p.m.

This year, the public will be treated to a new decor. The scene meandered from the sheep meadow to the sprawling lawn of the residence itself with actors using the beautiful home as part of the whole hilarious farce.

One of Shakespeare’s earliest plays, “The Comedy of Errors” is his shortest and most grotesque comedy, with much of the humor coming from slapstick and mistaken identity, in addition to puns and word games. After being separated from their twins in a shipwreck, Antiphonus searches for his long-lost identical brother, Antiphonus, while his servant, Dromio, searches for his long-lost identical brother, Dromio. The other set of twins live in Ephesus and the new arrivals cause a series of misidentity incidents.
