FREE Lunchtime Viewing of “The Comedy of Errors”

comedy-of-errors-shakespeare

If you’re like me, you had to read the complete works of William Shakespeare under the tutelage of an ancient, aviator glasses-wearing, chain-smoking high school English teacher. You also had to read The Canterbury Tales in Middle English. If you’re not like me but have decided that you could use a little more highbrow Brit culture in that thing you call your life, go to Justin Herman Plaza over your lunch break today for a FREE viewing of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors.

This is one of Bill’s earliest (1592-1594) and shortest (75 minutes) plays. It is almost the most hilarious: Imagine not one, but two sets of identical twins with identical names separated at birth who accidentally run into each other. Naturally, hilarity ensues due to mistaken identities: arguments, brawls, bonin’, demonic possession, and run-ins with the law — you know, the usual.

The American Conservatory Theater‘s MFA program’s class of 2012 and director Domenique Lozano are responsible for bringing this FREE performance to you. Grab some spring rolls from Out the Door, and hope the show doesn’t get rained out.

The Comedy of Errors at Justin Herman Plaza

Sarah M. Smart - Red-Light Special

Sarah M. Smart was summoned into being on a distant ice cream planet through an unholy union of Two-Buck Chuck and unicorns. They sent her to Indianapolis and then the University of Missouri's School of Journalism to spread peace and big hair. Perpetually in mourning for the comma, she has worked for a variety of print media, including Indianapolis Monthly, Global Journalist, and Vox. Since moving to San Francisco for the booming dumpster-diving scene, she has been an online operative for such fine folks as Horoscope.com , Neo-Factory, and Academy of Art University. After a day of cat-feeding, hat-making, dog-walking, vegan baking, and daydreaming about marrying rich, all she wants is a margarita as big as her face.
