Stripping away classical expectations, director Lijesh Krishnan brings a fresh perspective to The Comedy of Errors, setting it in his native India. He takes the story of a restless twin journeying East in search of a long-lost brother and mother, and explores issues of identity (How much of who we are is tied up with how we are perceived and treated?), alienness, and (mis)-communication across cultural divides. An experienced comedic ensemble of 6 women and 6 men brings together elements of romance and farce, along with some exquisite poetry and old Bollywood songs, in a spirited and colorful production that goes beyond surface cultural distinctions to get to the essential humanity of Shakespeares plays.
The play is directed by Lijesh Krishnan at the Theater of Others home, the Kelly Cullen Community Auditorium. The Comedy of Errors runs Thursdays through Sundays, October 5 – 21.
