The Original Practice Shakespeare Festival presents a free, live performance of “Comedie of Errors” from 7 to 9:30 p.m. July 11 at Laurelhurst Park, S.E. Cesar E. Chavez Blvd. and Start St., Portland. The actors have no idea what character they will play until the audience casts the show one hour prior to curtain. Arrive early to help cast the show before the play begins. This performance is not suitable for children. Picnics are welcome and all attendees should wear masks. Here’s a plot synopsis:
Two sets of identical twins, masters (Antipholus) and servants (Dromio), were separated by shipwreck. Antipholus of Syracuse arrives in Ephesus and Adriana mistakes him for her husband (E. Antipholus). S. Antipholus gets a gold chain E. Antipholus ordered, but then E. Antipholus is arrested for not paying. Confusion reigns until Antipholus’ parents are found.
