Bear & Co. presents The Comedy of Errors

Bear & Co. is heading back to the wild west this summer as they set Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors out west and take it out into parks around Ottawa. One of Shakespeare’s earliest works, The Comedy of Errors (as the title might suggest) is also one of his funniest and most farce-like.

Michelle Leblanc and Anna Lewis talk about The Comedy of Errors and give you a peak at one of the scenes:

Trouble with the video, watch directly on YouTube instead.

A look at Bear & Co.'s The comedy of ErrorsA time of lawlessness and danger. A time of cowboys and frontier women. Bear & Co. brings you back to the wild west in Shakespeare’s mad-cap mistaken identity play, The Comedy of Errors. When two sets of identical twins find themselves in the quiet town of Galveston, passion and mayhem are bound to ensue.

Galveston might not be big enough for the both of them.

William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors is directed by Anna Lewis. It stars Brie Barker, David Benedict Brown, Leslie Cserepy, Rachel Eugster, Michelle LeBlanc, Anna Lewis, Tim Oberholzer, Alexis Scott, Will Somers and David Whiteley.

The show runs from July 4th to August 4th at various parks around Ottawa. (Visit Bear and Co.’s website for the full tour schedule.) Tickets for the show are “pass the hat” with a $15 dollar suggested donation. The show goes on rain or shine — bring your blanket, lawn chair, bug spray and suncreeen!
