The Comedy of Errors

JUNE 25–JULY 20

Two sets of twins, ten tons of trouble—The Comedy of Errors is the ultimate in mistaken identity. Aaron Posner returns to Cal Shakes for the first time since directing one of the most-loved productions in our recent history, 2009's A Midsummer Night's Dream, to crank up the hilarity and uncover fresh truths in one of the master's cleverest comedies.

Runtime: The Comedy of Errors runs two hours, including a 15-minute intermission.
