For the first time ever, Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks is making a stop at the gorgeous RiverEdge Park along the Fox River. The world-renowned theater company will be presenting Shakespeare’s comedic masterpiece, The Comedy of Errors. Join us for this FREE event (thanks to the generous support of Dunham Fund), and bring the whole family for an unforgettable night of theater — perfect for all ages. Bring a chair or blanket and sit on the lawn, or settle into one of our newly-installed seats and get ready for a riotous comedy in a setting that old William Shakespeare himself would have loved.
The story unfolds when Antipholus and his lifelong servant Dromio find themselves in Ephesus as they search the world over for a twin, lost in infancy. Everywhere they go in this foreign land, complete strangers insist that they’re best of friends. Is everyone here quite mad? Mistaken identities abound, as one bewildering day in Ephesus makes for hilarious complications—and a bewitching theatrical experience. Shakespeare’s popular comedy is adapted and directed by Jeff Award-winning director and choreographer, David H. Bell.
