Syracuse Shakespeare In The Park continue their 2021 season with ‘Comedy of Errors’ in Thornden Park.
The farce, directed by Basil Allen, is the second production of SSITP’s nineteenth season. It also holds true to the company’s mission to present authentic Elizabethan theatre to Central New York audiences outdoors.
The comedy tells the story of two sets of identical twins, who act nothing alike. Actors Jesse Navagh and Jay Merante play Antipholus and Dromio of Syracuse, who are mistaken for siblings they’ve never met: Antipholus and Dromio of Ephesus, played by Aaron Alexander and Brian O’Connor. As chaos and comedy ensue, the twins find themselves caught up in a love triangle, and that’s just the beginning.
