Compass Shakespeare Ensemble stages Comedy of Errors


Compass Shakespeare EnsembleCompass Shakespeare Ensemble presents a small-scale performance of Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors. This production sets Shakespeare’s hilarious story of twins, mix-ups and mayhem in the tumultuous world of the 1960s in this small-scale production.

A “small-scale” show is a performance in which a cast of four to five actors portray twenty to thirty characters. This unique staging convention challenges actors in a myriad of ways– actors are tasked with creating multiple characters and physicalities and often find themselves talking –or even fighting– with themselves onstage.

This event is a rare and must-see occurrence in CSE’s performance season. Don’t miss this opportunity to watch the sword-fish fights of one man against himself!

The Comedy of Errors begins its season/tour on Monday, December 5th @ 8:00 pm, at the Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton. A donation of $5 in support of our season’s mission is suggested. For more information visit our website at www.MBUCSE.com.
