Confetti Stage returns to the gardens of Ten Broeck Mansion with an hilarious presentation of one of Shakespeare’s first plays.
Antipholus of Ephesus is having a really bad day. First, his faithful servant Dromio of Ephesus reports on strange requests he never made, and then his wife barricades him out of his mansion. Before long, the police are after him, and an overzealous exorcist is flinging holy water in his face.
Are dark supernatural forces at work? Or could it be that Antipholus of Syracuse, his long-lost twin brother, has arrived in town with his own servant Dromio–who happens to be the twin of his brother’s servant–and is causing all sorts of mayhem around town!? Presented in the style of classic, slapstick comedy, this tale twins and mistaken identities is sure to have audiences laughing hard!
Guests are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets and enjoy their evening with a picnic dinner under the stars. Light refreshments will be available to purchase at all performances.
