  • THE COMEDY OF ERRORS
    by William Shakespeare
    April 6 - 17, 2011

Serge has just indulged his penchant for modern art by buying a large, expensive and almost blank white painting. Marc is horrified, and their relationship suffers considerable strain. Yvan is caught in the middle, trying to please and mollify each of them. From beginning to end, Art is a dazzling array of crackling language and a witty and intelligent exploration of the complexities of friendship and a provocative and profound debate about the rules that dictate art. It won the Olivier and the Tony Award for best play.

“ 'Art' belongs to a tradition that once flourished but is seldom represented these days: the sleek, pleasant comedy of manners with an intellectual veneer that allows audiences to relax…a limber comic exercise in escalating tensions.” – New York Times

"A fine production. Harris and Hollman again show the ability and chemistry to make the audience laugh/gasp/hurt in quick succession." - Connecticut Wit

Directed by Drama Desk Award Nominated Director Tom Ridgely
