STAGE TALK – The Comedy of Errors
w/ UCLA PROFESSOR MICHAEL ALLEN
Distinguished Professor Emeritus, UCLA Professor Michael Allen** takes us behind the scenes of one of one of Shakespeare’s earliest and shortest plays to discuss the characters, a farcical plot filled with puns and wordplay, and how much bedlam can occur in a mere 24 hours. We’ll discover what was going on in the early career of the Bard to inspire him to give us this zany take on refugees, mistaken identity, status, and the journey to find home again.
Excerpts from the play will be read by SBTS & LFT Company Members.
In keeping with the setting of the play, guests will travel from Syracuse to Ephesus by enjoying a selection of hors d’oeuvres and beverages reminiscent of Southern Italy, Greece and Turkey.
