Lean & Hungry Theater Present "The Comedy of Errors"

Sunday, June 22, 2014 @6:00pm

On Sunday, June 22 at 6 p.m., Lean & Hungry Theater and WAMU 88.5 present a live audio adaptation of William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors.

Two sets of twins separated at birth embroil a community in a series of hijinks in order to reunite in Lean & Hungry Theater's latest radio adaption. Set in the wild, wild west, The Comedy of Errors features a shipwreck, mistaken identities, and a family reunion 30 years in the making.

Directed by Megan Behm and adapted for the airwaves by Lean & Hungry's resident dramaturg, Isabel Smith-Bernstein, the one-hour radio adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic will be broadcast live at 6 p.m. on June 22 from American University's amphitheater. Ben Model will perform live improvised music during the show. Tickets are $15 and children 12 years old and younger are admitted free. Tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite. Audience members at home can listen to the live broadcast on WAMU 88.5.

Families are invited to arrive an hour early to picnic and take part in pre-show entertainment provided by Carbone Entertainment. Activities are appropriate for children of all ages.
