About THE COMEDY OF ERRORS, September 2016

THE COMEDY OF ERRORS continues Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks' tradition of offering FREE performances in numerous city parks on four weekends on Saturdays and Sundays during September 2016. The company continues its second decade with its 12th season production, opening Sat., Sept. 3. THE COMEDY OF ERRORS is rollicking tale of two sets of identical twins separated at birth. Class distinctions and madcap confusion ensue as the twins travel and meet up with their look-alike siblings.

Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks is in its 12th year of providing free Shakespeare in Pittsburgh city parks.
