Join the Edmonds Arts Commission Sunday afternoon for a free performance of Shakespeare’s “The Comedy of Errors” by the Seattle Shakespeare Co./Wooden O. The performance begins at 3 p.m. at Edmonds City Park, 3rd and Pine. Bring the family, lawn chairs or a blanket for the performance, which will last nearly two hours.
In “The Comedy of Errors,” two sets of long lost twins unknowingly cross paths and set the stage for an performance of mistaken, mixed-up confusion and mayhem. This comic masterpiece is full of slapstick and sight gags, puns and pratfalls. Keeping track of which twin is which is only half the fun, as Shakespeare also stacks the deck with some of his most outrageous characters, including a jealous wife, a seductive courtesan, a hapless old man seeking his sons, a zany conjurer attempting an exorcism, and even a nun who’s not all she seems to be.
The performance is part of this year’s Summer Concerts in the Park series presented by the Edmonds Arts Commission on behalf of the Edmonds City Council. Al performances are accessible to persons with disabilities. The next Concert in the Park is July 31 and features the Northwest favorites Reilly and Maloney.
