The feature logo for The Comedy of Errors is brought to you by Mezari designer Stephanie E.M. Coleman. We think it’s pretty rad.
Hey, why doesn’t this play work in film? Something to do with sweat spray from slapping the Dromios?
I have no idea. But our very own Gage posits an answer to that question. You’ll need to listen to get the skinny.
If you want to read about a stage version that managed to really make this play work, check out this review.
This week, we read the following parts from act II:
Act II, i (14-43): “There’s none but asses will be bridled so.”
Act II, i (52-80): “Why, mistress, sure my master is horn-mad.“
Act II, ii (82-123): “Ay, ay, Antipholus, look strange and frown”
Feel free to follow along and delicately correct our pronunciation while giving us slightly patronising smiles from behind your Complete Works.
Oh, and just look who showed up to read with us.
Also along for the ride again is Gage K. Diabo.
Because we know you’re just too shy to ask but are dying to know, here’s a famous line from this act to memorize:
“How many fond fools serve mad jealousy” – Luciana.
You’re welcome. There may be a quiz in a few weeks. Just saying.
Here’s a link to Shakespeare Kelowna, a company that will be putting on Comedy of Errors May 17-28. If you’re in the area, you should go check it out. If you know of any other companies staging Comedy of Errors, let us know. We’d love to get the work out!
Catch us next week as we continue to get lost in the side-streets of Ephesus with our Dromios and Antopholi! (Antipholuses? Whatever.)
