Shakespeare in the Park: The Comedy of Errors, this Thursday and Friday at the Boathouse

Chicago Shakespeare's summer collaboration with the Park District to put on mobile theater performances throughout the City is coming to Humboldt Park this Thursday and Friday when they present The Comedy of Error. The production will take place on a mobile stage at the boathouse at 6:30 pm on both days. This is the second year of this series; it is free and open to all ages. Please see below for the press release and flyer from Chicago Shakespeare.

Building on the success of last summer’s inaugural Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks, the expanded 2013 program will bring William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, FREE FOR ALL, to Humboldt Park (just east of the Humboldt Park Boathouse) on Thursday, August 8th and Friday, August 9th, 2013 -shows at 6:30 pm A specially equipped truck will roll into the park, a stage will unfold, and a company of professional actors will share the delight of Shakespeare with families and neighbors of all ages. Audiences will experience the wildly entertaining tale of a man and his servant landing in a foreign land, searching for their long-lost twin brothers. Everywhere they go, strangers insist that they’re old friends. Mistaken identities abound, but in the end, chaos gives way to clarity in this comedy filled with mayhem and madness.  Come to the park with a picnic blanket or lawn chairs and enjoy the show!!!
