ETC Presents “Comedy of Errors” by Shakespeare on August 12, 2011

Reporting: Monessa Guilfoil

Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga Producing Partner and Director Garry Posey reports that, “Comedy of Errors” is based on a Roman farce as one of Shakespeare’s first plays and also his shortest so is a great introduction to the Bard’s body of work.     Posey’s concept for this production is, “Super Fly meets Laugh In” complete with bell bottoms, silk shirts and jump suits and a set that resembles a Laugh-In wall.

The play features a befuddled reunion of two sets of twins who were separated at birth leading to much confusion, mistaken identities and slap-stick all around.

The 1960’s just wouldn’t be the same without Rowan and Martin’s “Laugh-In.”

Here’s a few minutes of the 1976 adaptation of, “Comedy of Errors” by Trevor Nunn:
