I'm back at The St. Norbert Ruins with Shakespeare in the Ruins presenting one of Shakespeare's funniest and silliest comedies: The Comedy of Errors.
This is what SIR has to say about the play:
Everyone is seeing double in the legendary town of Epheseus. Following the fortunes of not one, but two, sets of identical twins, Shakespeare’s comedy of mistaken identity is soaked in effervescent humour with a hint of the absurd. These men, separated as boys by a shipwreck, are about to have their lives and loves turned upside down. Canadian theatre superstar Ron Jenkins directs and our cast of actors are ready to entertain. And the magical ruins of the Trappist Monastery Provincial Heritage Park are your unforgettable backdrop.
Shakespeare in the Ruins presents its shows in a promenade style - where you travel from place to place in the park, guided by the actors, to watch different scenes of the play. It's a lot of fun! If you live in and around Winnipeg I highly recommend making the trek out to the park to watch the show. Feeling intimidated by Shakespeare? Don't be. Comedy of Errors is a great show to watch if you are unfamiliar with The Bard's work - it's light-hearted and filled with physical comedy.
I've got a soft spot for this show. I performed in it with another local company Theatre by the River in 2006.
Me and my friend Rod (as Luciana & Antipholus of Syracuse).
Rod also happens to be performing in SIR's version of Comedy of Errors.
