Director Kevin Condardo says THE COMEDY OF ERRORS, one of Shakespeare’s earlier comedies, issure to please both Shakespeare novices and aficionados alike. “The story is simple and easy to follow - if you've seen a mistaken identity farce before, chances are COMEDY was an influence,” says Condardo who is also 7SSC’s Managing Director.  “Beyond that, though, there are also a lot of juicy surprises to find when you dig in to the poetry and watch a young Shakespeare learning how to write.” 


ThisShakespeare in Prescott Parkproduction tells the story of two sets of twins separated at birth who turn a secluded bayou town on its head for the strangest afternoon on record as they unwittingly cross paths in Shakespeare's boisterous farce. The visiting twins from hated Syracuse find themselves greeted by strangers and given unsolicited gifts, the hometown twins native to Ephesus find themselves locked out of their home and inexplicably pestered by police and creditors alike, and the rest of the town is left seeing double and trying to sort out the incredibly unusual sequence of events.


“This cast is unbelievable and, I say without reservation, far better than I deserve,” says Condardo. “Almost everyone in the company has played leading roles on the Seacoast in the recent past, and to have that much top-to-bottom talent is an incredible gift and tremendously fun to work with.” The cast includes: Dan Beaulieu; Meredith Caple; Scott Caple; Tara Jean Conway; G. Matthew Gaskell; Rich Harris; Bill Humphreys; Sara LaFlamme; CJ Lewis; Megan O'Connor; Ryan Salvato; Christopher Savage; James Sears; Nate Speckman; and Matthew Von Richards.


THE COMEDY OF ERRORS in Prescott Park plays on: Sunday, July 13; Sunday, July 20; Sunday, August 3; Sunday, August 10; and Sunday, August 17. All shows at 3PM. For more information
