Comedy of Errors
Comedy of Errors will be set in a 1920's/30's circus show, utilizing the floor space as the central place of action: the circus ring. The circus conceit (and archetypes such as clowns) will communicate the themes and major elements of the play, especially the mistaken identities and slapstick humor.
Auditions will be Monday and Tuesday (September 22nd-23rd, 8-10 pm) with call-backs on Wednesday the 24th.
Actors should prepare a Shakespearean monologue between 1 and 2 minutes long.
