A Silly Menaechmi by Plautus

September 26 @ 7:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until September 27, 2021


Based on an ancient Roman play, which in turn is based on a lost Greek play, A Silly Menaechmi is a comedy of the confusion created when two twin brothers, parted as babes, surprisingly end up in the same town at the same time.  Add in a befuddled wife, a confused mistress, a muddled servant and a bewildered best buddy and you end up with the inspiration for Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors and the 1940’s musical, The Boys from Syracuse.  Our production borrows heavily from slapstick and contemporary Commedia “bits” that will remind us that our crazy world is just as silly as it was over 2,000 years ago!
