The Comedy of Errors performed by Shakespeare at Winedale's Summer Class

Thursday Jul 18, 2019 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM | Winedale Historical Complex | Round Top, TX

Shakespeare at Winedale’s 2019 Summer Class takes the stage this July with performances of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, Macbeth, and Richard II. The season will open on Thursday, July 18th, and run through Sunday, August 11th.

“We are excited to showcase the breadth of Shakespeare’s work this summer with three of his greatest plays,” says Professor James Loehlin, the program’s director.  “We are performing masterpieces from each of the three genres he wrote in, comedy, tragedy, and history.  The Comedy of Errors, Macbeth, and Richard II are all terrifically entertaining, and really highlight the virtues of Shakespeare’s different styles at different points in his career.”

The Comedy of Errors: Separated at birth, two sets of identical twins stumble into the port of Ephesus, causing hijinks and hilarity. Mistaken identities lead to wild mishaps, wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, and accusations of infidelity, theft, and demonic possession. The Comedy of Errors is a madcap romp with unforgettable characters and a heartwarming tale of finding your real family.

Tickets are $10 for general admission or $5 for students, as well as UT faculty and staff. Patrons can purchase tickets through the Shakespeare at Winedale website or by calling (512) 471-4726.
