THE COMEDY OF ERRORS
March 10

April 16, 2023

CST's Courtyard Theater

by William Shakespeare
adapted & directed by Barbara Gaines
Studio scenes by Ron West

In her final production as artistic director, Barbara Gaines revisits her signature interpretation of Shakespeare’s riotous comedy with newly rewritten scenes penned by Second City veteran Ron West. An eccentric group of stage and screen actors gather on a London movie set in 1941 to film the play as much-needed comic relief for the troops. Backstage antics and hilarious complications abound as Antipholus and Dromio search for their identical twins, lost since infancy. Over three decades with Chicago Shakespeare Theater, Gaines has directed sixty productions, including nearly all of Shakespeare’s thirty-eight plays and six world premieres—and now imprints her legacy with this joyful comedy.
